"minicom" (a low-level program to "dialog" with your modem or whatever
device you've got plugged on the serial port) could do the trick. You can
pass the gsm modem the proper reset AT comands.
If the problem is within the serial port but the daemon handling the
connection, you can try to restart networkmanager or whatever program you
used to make the link (wvdial, kppp, pppd, etc...).
