I would ask that ALL of the newer dongles running "Hi-Link" such as the E3131 are supported in the next firmware release!

From another site, if it helps:

Some Huawei USB modems have a mode called "HiLink?" which provides for "driverless" installation on Windows, Macintosh and Linux computers.

The current Huawei HiLink? modem firmware operates as a NAT router rather than as a traditional modem. HiLink? provides no mechanism for the IP address assigned by the cellular operator to be "passed through" to the attached device, nor does HiLink? provide any sort of port-forwarding capability.

For these reasons, HiLink? mode cannot be used for remote access applications (e.g. Remote Desktop, VNC, web servers, etc.) where "inbound" connections are initiated by computers on the Internet. To use HiLink? mode, your application must require only "outbound" initiated connections (e.g. web browsing, email, etc.), or you must implement a VPN connection to another device which is initiated by the router which has the HiLink? mode modem installed.

It is necessary to disable HiLink? mode when initializing the modem.
