I have a ZTE T116a mobile phone that I use for internet access with my ASUS S400CA running Fedora 27 when otherwise away from the internet.

It is detected and the Mobile Broadband menu is present. I added a connection but when I try and connect the tray icon just flickers up for a moment and then the Mobile Broadband status immediately returns to Off. I tried adding a second connection profile with different settings (both connections have valid settings) but get the same result.

I first started using this connection method under f23 and it worked right out of the box. It kept working all the way through to f27 as I upgraded no problem. Now that I have a clean install of f27 it is no longer working. I would say that nothing else has changed but, I have doubled the RAM and added a new SSD in place of the fusion drive when I did the clean install, not that they are probably related to the issue.

Where to start? Any ideas?
