If this dongle is the only WiFi device, removing it will cause the
technology to disappear as there are no devices this specific technology
is able to control. So no options for this, but see
TetheringTechnologies and PersistentTetheringMode in main.conf if the
use case is such that tethering state needs to be remembered.
