        Unlike systemd, this was one thing that caused me frequent problems when it was introduced into Debian.

        It’s handy on a laptop, but I ban it from my sedentary machines.

          Is the card actually showing up in ways linux can control?

            Tried with the Tumbleweed and Leap 42.2 both. It appears in NetworkManager (both distros had latest updates applied). When I tried adding "New Broadband Connection" then modem device was not being visible, only "any device" or whatever was offered.

            For some reason correct device was shown as secondary ethernet device, but as wwan0. Go figure.

            Google shows the issue going back some years. It's fixable on your own but an annoyance nonetheless.

            It'd be nice if it's finally properly fixed, so user does not have need to pull hair out.

                Not by me. I made sure it does not work "by default" and wiped the openSUSE from harddrive right after..

                  So blame yourself if it does not work. Problems not reported are problemsl not existing.

                  As the the DW5570 is a rebranded Sierra Wireless card, and other Sierra devices using the same chipset (MC73xx series) are working fine under Linux, it is likely it is supported under Linux (and openSUSE). Probably you only had not installed ModemManager (which is used by NetworkManager to support WWAN devices).
