NetworkManager is intended to control the default internet connection.
If NetworkManager cannot control the default internet connection, then
you may not want to use NetworkManager.

In your case, you're using a mobile broadband device.  The real bug here
is that for whatever reason, NM/MM aren't connecting your modem, and we
should follow up on that bug instead.
