the resolution of this, which might take a few days, I still need to

trying, whether or not the internet connection is working.

You are right. In Vodafone mobile connect driver for Linux you can see an icon in the system tray. This is the same for Windows. 

When you are disconnected, this icon disappear.

This is produced using code.


P.S.: I can give more information, if you are interested.
