a few questions regarding of Verizon Wireless UM175 USB Modem

I absolutely LOVE this modem and the connection it provides.  I'm sure the answers to my two questions are right under my nose, but I'm a bit overwhelmed in trying to look for the information, so I'll just ask here:

 

Can I use the modem on more than one computer during each billing cycle?  In other words, in addition to the currently used laptop, I have another computer.  Could I use the modem on that or is the contract just for use on one machine during the billing cycle?  Also, if that is possible, and the other computer that I wanted to use was a netbook with no cdrom drive, can I download the software or obtain the software on a usb stick?

 

Thanking in advance,

My device still not detected after following these instructions.  Going into My Computer, my USB is not even showing up there.

 

Trying to figure that out.
