Parrelles connecting with Verizon USB modem

I am looking for any help that anyone could provide with the following problem. I am new to Mac and Parralles but have become fairly comfortable with both. The problem is this...the Parralles will connect to the Mac Airport with some assistance, but if I am not at a hot point, I have to use a Verizon Wireless USB modem. The Parralles will not connect to the device either by force or auto. If someone else has run into this and can provide a solution I would be most gratefull.

Just trying to help you get better results on your search, not sure if there's a forum for what you're doing, but hardware repair might not be the right place to look. I'd probably try "Other Technology".

ok, thanks

I'm sorry, as this may not help, but sometimes, OS X will NOT let hardware attached to it be taken over by Parallels. I have encountered this many times, including in particular, my Motorola RAZR and have to actually reboot into Windows XP with it. If you can find drivers for OS X (or opensource drivers/guide) you can set that as the network/modem and use OS X to do it. I seem to recall that Verizon made drivers for a lot of their hardware. the problem is just getting them. Most of the time it was on a CD that you had to PAY for. What you might need to do is go to verizon and be really nice, and they *may* let you get the drivers off of them. That was the only way I could get my RAZR to connect to my mac.

It's odd, they will sell the hardware, but not support it unless you buy the software for it...
