Probably because it is not seen by the host as a network card. Only
network cards seem to be possible to share to the VPC guests.
My guess is that the USB device is seen as a modem on your host and
therefore it is not useful as a NIC to VPC.
But you should be able to set up Shared Networking on the host and use
this as the connection to the Internet from the guest. You won't be
able to communicate between the host and guest that way though.
