Whatever's in Fedora - v1.6.12. Guess I should upgrade. :-)

That kicked it off into some sort of endless reboot sequence.
Cool! :-)

A full power cycle of the laptop didn't even fix it. I actully needed
to boot the laptop into Windows 10 to make it work again...wonder why.

I'll dig some more. Might be that the mmcli --reset actually is a
dangerous command on this particular modem.
