The Network operators tab provides you with the possibility to scan for and manually manage mobile network operators to which the router's SIM card can connect to. Operator selection is only available for the primary SIM card. In order to specify an operator for the other SIM card it must first be selected as the primary SIM in the SIM Management section.
Operators scan settings
As default Connection mode is set to AUTO, although to initiate a scan, select connection mode Manual, press Scan for operators and then you will be prompted with a pop-up asking if you wish to proceed. This is because while the scan is in progress you will lose your data connection for up to 3 minutes.
