    Default pppd[0] died: Serial port open failed (exit code 7)

    I am using a verizon usb cell modem and qinternet to connect to the internet. Periodically I get disconnected with the following error:

    Code:
    Status is: disconnected
    pppd[0] died: pppd options error (exit code 2)
    When I try to reconnect the following error displays:

    Code:
    pppd[0]: Failed to open /dev/ttyACM0: Input/output error
    Status is: disconnected
    pppd[0] died: Serial port open failed (exit code 7)
    The only way to reconnect is to reboot. Is there a way to "repair" the serial port connection without rebooting?

    thanks

    man pppd:

    2 An error was detected in processing the options given, such
    as two mutually exclusive options being used.

    7 The serial port could not be opened.


    Try unplug/replug.
