I have a headless server that I am trying to set up as a remote webcam.  I have a Telecom MF636 T-stick that I am trying to setup.  Although all the hardware seems to be OK and most of the software is making the right reports, I can't get onto the internet. 

I have searched in the web but I can't find a solution.

The symptoms are described below:

For the T-stick
The blue LED glows constantly, no flickering.
I had the T-stick checked at the Telecom shop.  It has credit and they had it working on a windows machine.  So I know the USB is functional.

I have nmcli installed.
lsusb detects the T-stick
nmcli dev status reports ttyUSB2 disconnected
nmcli con list does not list anything
nmcli nm reports:
  RUNNING     running
  STATUS       connected
  WIFI    enabled
  WIRELESS WAN    enabled
  WWAN                enabled

I have run the command
nmcli nm wwan on    
to ensure the wwan connection is on.

does not report the wwan connection.

My Ethernet connection is manually configured and that works fine.

I suspect I need to edit the wireless equivalent of /etc/networks/interfaces.

This file currently does not contain anything related to the wwan interface.

Any pointers would be much appreciated.

I gave up on nmcli.  I got the connection working with wvdial.
