return without being connected for real

I know this isn't really a DotRas question, but a RAS one, but for lack of any better place (other than the device manufacturer, which I am going to also do) I ask it here:

Has anyone encountered a RAS type device (USB cellular modem, in my case) which returns the connected state prior to actually being "really" connected? I noticed this because sometimes my VPN connection which gets launched next after the cell connection fails unless one waits "a while" after. Seems to be different on different devices - Sierra Wireless 597 behaving "better" than its very similar newer counterpart, the 598.

Sounds like a device driver issue to me; Windows should only be reporting back what's reported by the device.

I haven't heard anything on here. Sorry :(
