The solution is somehow won’t be simple, just in case if you bought a WWAN module that is not whitelisted in HP BIOS. HP has this whitelist to basically promote the sale of their own components even though there is no difference between a non-HP sold component and an HP sold component. Although to allow the HP sold parts for being recognized and accepted by the BIOS and Device Manager, HP has installed its own firmware.

If your WWAN module doesn’t work, doesn’t have an HP part serial number, the only solution is to return it and get your money back.

After that, buy one which is supported by HP BIOS Laptop from HP Spare parts store or from service centers & authorized dealers.
