Raspberry Pi and SixFab LTE HAT - Lease errors

For what it’s worth I can get an IP pretty consistently by doing the qmi instaler and the auto-connect installer then once it reboots I have to issue the below commands to get the card up, connected and responding to a ping. Taken me about a week to get this far and I’m going to back up this image and then try to get Raspap working, wish me luck!

P.S. If anyone, more knowledgeable, can tell me “why” I have to got through these gyrations or even how to automate it so I don’t have to do this every time I restart it would greatly be appreciated! On AT&T with a Kore Wireless SIM.
