Verizon USB 727 broadband modem Novatel Wireless

I just finished reinstalling a laptop and needed to install the Verizon cellular modem.  I found the drivers online at which lists several models.  The one for the USB727 was downloaded and installed, but every step of the way, I got pop ups that indicated it couldn't find some part of the hardware.  I have always installed USB device software first, then inserted the USB device.  However, this time, that apparently doesn't work.

I'm not sure if it would have recoginized the installation if the usb727 was inserted or not, but after it was all installed, It still didn't recognize the device.  I looked at the device manager and found 4 items under other that were not recognized.  They were data ports. 

After researching I found this site: which had basically the same problem I had.  I right clicked each unrecognized item in other and selected the auto install.  It found the drivers and installed it for each one.  There are 4 separate dataports. 

And, no, there is not software on the USB for this model.
