If you have huawei or zte usb modem - and cannot connect it to vmware -follow next steps
1 install modem software and drivers on real computer .

3 connect modem to real computer ,install modem software and drivers , open hardware by right click in "computer", open com and lpt ports . remember com port -which usb modem is connected.
4 open hyperterminal or putty, connect to port which modem installed and type this command AT^SETPORT="A1,A2;1,2,3," - this command set you modem in "modem only" mode
if you have a huawei modem e402(same with me) or newer, this command IS NOT WORKING . you need type command AT^SETPORT="FF;1,2"
if you carefully read step 2 you'r modem will be detecting automatically.
5 PS. ZTE modems have another AT command system with HUAWEI- to switch ZTE in "modem only" mode you need to type this commands AT%USBMODEM=0
