Not really. The »CDC NCM support« ( CONFIG_USB_NET_CDC_NCM ) has already been included.
Thanks for your attention

I put "413c:818e Linux" into a search engine, you could evaluate the results, there are some, like this one.

Thanks for the link. Searching like this of course was/is the first I did. In this case unfortunately it didn't show up the missing driver (but maybe, it isn't really missing).

Did you mean the lines aound had changed the way the kernel modules load?
To me it's not even clear which of the driver(s) need to be modules
  • cdc_acm
  • cdc_wdm
  • cdc_mbim
Presently I have them all built-in.

Sorry, didn't dig that deep. But there is something, this guy has exactly same card, USB ID is the same.

So it's time for me to check where this laptop wants the sim card inserted and to get such sim card for testing.
