A little UP! on this old thread...


The best thing to do is look up for your modem/WWAN's PCI ids. If the card is not detected as a WWAN module, it may be listed under USB in Apple Menu -> System Report. I did a quick search on the Net and it looks like the DW5620 could be: Ven id 0x413c/Dev id 0x8186 (Dell (Qualcomm) Gobi 2000 modem).


Once you have the ids, look at applying the process documented here: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2385-wwan-modules-a-quick-guide/


If you can confirm the above ids, this would look similar to Novatel modems and you should be able to get it easily added under Mac OS X. It could be locked to a specific network though, but that's a different matter altogether.
