Question / Issue
Novatel USB551L / MC679 Flashes Yellow/Green LED

Answer / Solution

The Novatel Wireless USB551L (Verizon Wireless 4G/LTE) and MC679 (Telus/Bell) modems' USB connector contains a switch which disconnects the modem if the USB connector is rotated outside of a narrow angle.

The modem should be inserted into the router and the USB connector should not be moved from its "natural" 120 degree angle.  Changing the connector angle will cause the modem's status LED to flash Yellow/Green and will prevent the modem from making a data connection to the network.
