That NoEffect error means the context is already connected, so that's
why you get a packet data handle.
As it is already connected, it may be because it's set to autoconnect
(check with qmicli --wds-get-autoconnect-settings), and you can just
gather current IP settings (qmicli --wds-get-current-settings) to see
what needs to be configured in the network interface.
