update: I don't understand what's going on here. Now when I check status, the modem is no longer giving me a response.I have found the thread on flashing firmware on this thing on Linux and I think that is my only option left.
It's possible that the router's firmware doesn't have the proper drivers for this particular modem, or it's sending the wrong APN command, however you can correct that with the previously posted CGDCONT commands.
If you're not getting any response from the modem, make sure you're sending the AT command to the proper port. Some modems created multiple "diag" and "modem" ports in device manger so you'll just have to try sending an "AT" alone multiple times to each port to see which one responds (that is if you have the modem in an external usb adapter). If it's inside the router and not getting any response, try repowering the router a couple of times.
Keep in mind, trying to use "cheap" laptop branded modems will likely give you headaches, thus it's best to stick with true and tried models like the Sierra MC7455/EM7511/EM7565 or Quectel EC25-AF/EP06-A/EM12G etc.
