Mobile Broadband not good in F17

Plugging my mobile phone into my netbook was a dream under F16 - after setting up the APN, my mobile used to connect and stay connected for hours. Now I'm lucky if it stays connected for more than 5 minutes.

My phone has not changed and the signal strength is great. Fedora 17 drops the connection and if I look in Network Manager after the dropout - mobile broadband does not appear to be an option. I can only reconnect if I unplug the USB cable and re-attach.

I can't believe its a Kernel issue as I was able to use this with 3.3 under F16. Any ideas?
