Now I lost contact with the modem, I can not access internet and not even login to HiLink any longer. I tried firmware flashing tool for Huawei modem but the tools can not find / detect any ports in the modem, In Control panel, Device Manager, there are no Ports.

    Now I wonder if you have any clue what I can do, except trash-bin it. I want to recover it, if possible.
