I bought a Slate along with a Huawei E3372 dongle - and it does not appear to be detected on my GL-iNET Slate.
No modem device found. Plug in your USB modem to start.
When I log in, and run dmesg, I see:

Any idea what’s going on?
I did see the Huawei E3372 listed as compatible on the Slate Docs page
. I tried emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, but haven’t received a reply yet. (Guessing they’re busy at the moment).
Is there another USB dongle that is recommended?
For the Spitz device - I see there’s a “CAT4 EC25-AF 4G AT&T,T-Mobile” modem - but then I saw on https://store.gl-inet.com/blogs/news/meet-spitz that the EC25 isn’t recommended?
