Got a Chromebook for Christmas, but I don't have wi-fi at home. I do have the UML290 modem for my windows laptop.
Can I install VRZ manager on Chromebook, and use the USB modem on it to connect to the internet?
No! Chromebook uses Android OS, you will a CradlePoint MBR95 or Pepwave Surf on The Go Router to insert the UML290 and then you can use the built in wifi in the Chromebook to connect to the router and get internet access.
You can get the gear at 3gstore
Here is some Reviews on the MBR95 works like a champ
