Pi4 renamed wwan0 interface..

Wed Jul 31, 2019 4:27 pm

I'm using QMI interface with a Quectel BG96 modem. This creates WWAN0 interface on the Pi. A couple a days ago, without any notice, on Pi4 (Raspbian Buster) my "wwan0" interface became "wwp1s0u1u4i4" ... ouch!
This didn't happen on Pi3 (stretch).
Can I reset to default name wwan0? How can be done? :?:

:oops: Thank you, I've done before, but probably I selected wrong option...
Now it is ok!
