Anyone have luck using AT&T 340U usb card on RAP3?

I am trying to use an AT&T 340U usb card to connect by RAP3.  It never even appears to dial, status on card just read "Ready to connect".  I have access to the web page for the RAP3 and can ssh to it.  The RAP3 works fine with broadband plugged in to E0 but I want to verify I can use a usb aircard also.

What I've tried:

Resetting the RAP3 and just letting it auto detect - which looks correct.

Restarting with E0 disconnected.

Moving 3G/4G to the top of Uplink Priority List.

Manually setting: USB dev:  0x11999051 and USB type: netgear-gobi; or sierra-evdo or sierra-gsm or sierra gobi

Testing 4G card from laptop and updating 340U firmware to 01.13.12.14

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

To anyone that runs in to this.  6 days back and forth with TAC was not helpful, but I did find the answer by digging again in to these forums.

1) http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Aruba-Instant-Cloud-Wi-Fi/Provisioning-AT-amp-T-340U-with-RAP-109-US/td-p/224619

- bug ID 102807 was mentioned here, but the needed patch was not described

2) https://community.arubanetworks.com/aruba/attachments/aruba/Software-Downloads/32/1/Aruba%20Instant%206.4.2.6-4.1.1.10%20Release%20Notes.pdf

- a Google search found this Aruba doc which sheds the light that the needed Netgear patch is not a firmware upgrade, but rather a patch to make the 340U compatible with Linux

3)  https://mtekk.us/archives/guides/netgear-aircard-340u-linux/

- this author provided the link to the Netgear patch

4) http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/aircard/AC340U_linux_patch_v4.zip

-  alas the needed Netgear patch for Linux compatibility on the 340U
