Notes:

1) [DEVICE] is given as the full path to the cdc-wdm character device, e.g.:

/dev/cdc-wdm0

2) The mbim-network script requires a profile to work. Unless explicitly specified with `--profile', the file is assumed to be available in the following path:

/etc/mbim-network.conf

3) The APN to use should be configured in the profile, in the following way (e.g. assuming APN is called 'internet'):

APN=internet

4) Optional APN user/password strings may be given in the following way:

APN_USER=user APN_PASS=password

5) If APN user/password is specified, the authentication protocol to use (one of PAP, CHAP or MSCHAPV2) must also be specified in the following way:

APN_AUTH=protocol

6) If you want to instruct the mbim-network script to use the mbim-proxy setup, you can do so by configuring the following line in the profile:

PROXY=yes

7) Once the mbim-network script reports a successful connection you still need to run a DHCP client on the associated WWAN network interface.
