Not A Phone, But Windows 10 Mobile 4G Connection

Hi, does anyone happen to know the APN settings to use a Vodafone SIM with 4G data on in a Windows 10 laptop please?

 

I've bought a new laptop which has a built-in mobile broadband modem and popped in the SIM for one of my numbers which has a 10Gb/month 4G data allowance on it.

 

I've downloaded the Vodafone Windows 10 mobile broadband app and that runs and claims to be connected but doesn't actually allow any internet access.

 

So manually looking and there is a setting for adding an APN manually.  I've tried various combinations of the mobile broadband and MMS settings found elsewhere on this forum for phones but wondered if anyone knows the specific settings that Windows is asking for?

 

These are:

Profile name

APN

Username

Password

Type of sign-in info (options are None, PAP, CHAP or MS-CHAP v2)

IP type (options are Default, IPv4, IPv6, IPv4v6, IPv4v6XLAT)

 

Thanks
