UML290 & Mac: A new network interface has been detected

I have a MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard, and I just purchased a Pantech UML290 4G modem, live in an area with good 4G coverage, and I get a good 4G signal.  I am running VZAccess Manager version 7.2.5, and in general it connects to the 4G network fine and stays connected.  Every time I connect the modem to my laptop, Mac OS generates a "A new network interface has been detected" pop up with the option to Cancel or go to Network Preferences.  Canceling makes it go away.  

 

I also see 4 devices under System Preferences > Network: 

 

1. Verizon UM290 (which shows connected, not sure why it's missing the L in UML)

2. Pantech UML290 USB Modem

3. Pantech UML290 USB Serial

4. Pantech UML290 USB CM

 

Does anyone know how to get rid of the annoying message every time I connect the modem? Thanks.

I have the same set up.  Get the same messages almost everytime I start up the UML290.  Not sure why I occasionally don't get it.  Many others on the forum have reported this as well.  For now, we live with it.

What happens if it's plugged in before boot-up?
