The modem is Huawei MT882 on Windows via USB interface. This modem receives an IP over DHCP from the ISP. How do I get Slack on VirtualBox to recognize the presence of a USB modem, and configure it so it is able to use the internet connection on the host?

If i understand the question correctly, and you're not trying to passthrough the modem directly to the guest, you'd probably need to use the NAT networking option on virtualbox.
