NON CONTRACT MiFi 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot: Mac OS X Lion

I have a Mac Book Pro running Mac OS X Lion (10.7.2) and I just purchased the MiWi2200 Intelligent Hotspot. However, when I open VZ Access Manager, it says: VZ Access Manager installation requires administrator privileges.  Please log in as a member of the administrator group to install. VZ Acess Manager must be run once in an adminstrative account. It can subsequently be run in a user acccount. Even though I am on the admin account! Apparently, it says this because I'm running Lion.

I want to be able to run my software and use this MiFi!

This is what it should be or similar to this! http://www.askdavetaylor.com/how_to_set_up_configure_verizon_mifi2200_device.htm l

Please help!

Thank you!

Aha! I had this very same problem recently.  The VZAcess manager that's on the hotspot won't work with Lion.  I had to download a newer version. You can find it here: http://vzam.net

Be sure to uninstall the old version first.  There's an uninstall menu item in the vz access manager app that you should use. For more info, check out the VZ Access Manager troubleshooting guide on this website.  I'd leave you links, but the board here is not playing nice with my iPad.
