GL-MT300N-V2 recognises Huawei USB modem E5573Bs-322 as "Tethering" instead of "3G/4G Modem"

Hello,

My Huawei USB modem E5573Bs-322 is recognized by my brand new GL-MT300N-V2 (3.025) as “Tethering” instead of “3G/4G Modem”, is it desired?

I have captured the outputs of ifconfig -a, lsusb -v, dmesgand logread on https://gist.github.com/cyrille-leclerc/5eaccd4c4d483a8a51a15cf033b95644
