How to prevent new duplicate Modem entries in Control Panel

After updating x32Win10Pro to V21H2 (by MRU instead of Media Creator) I found there were 38 entries for my modem : Archer_VR1600v, in the Multimedia Devices section of Control Panel. I managed to reduce them to 1, but almost everyday a new one appears - I presume when the modem boots up. What would cause that and how could it be prevented ?
