Cisco CG522-E Cellular gateway – Subsystem stopped: cwand

There seems to be some bug in the newest Cisco 5G cellular gateway (CG522-E), shipped with 17.05 firmware. When you insert a SIM card, Linux cwand subsystem crashes and it keeps cycling, not detecting the SIM card:

Subsystem stopped: cwand

Guessing this has something to do with congestion windows parameter settings in the Linux subsystem, in combination with our SIM card (mobile network) specifications.

The only solution was to downgrade to 17.04 firmware. That fixed the issue for now.
