As a general rule, IP Version IPv4 & IPv6 should be used as default unless instructed by your provider.
You can also set a TTL to be used with this SIM profile, default is 0 which no TTL adjustment is being made by the modem. (See our KB article for more information about TTL settings).
Click Save when complete. The modem will then reboot with your SIM settings.

If you are using a "bring your own sim" and have no internet, check your SIM card settings to make sure the correct provider and/or APN is being used.
If you are registered on the tower and have no internet, you will need to reach out to your provider to confirm your service is active and online.
