I keep getting a firmware update message every time i connect now. It's asking me for a password but my password is not working. Consistently. I am entering it exactly as it is on the back of the MifI. Anyone else have this problem?

Password is admin.  Then you go to a new screen and can set your own password.  Download the upgrade.  Unzip when it is complete. Go through the installation process.  Next use the usb cord to finish the istall.  (I had to use the usb cord from my phone to work with my MIFI)  because I did not get a usb cord with my Mifi.  Everything is working fine now.  Everything took approxiamately 15 minutes to complete.

 

Hope this helps.

Same problem as of today.  I'm copying the exact password from my wifi access on my laptop so I know it is right.

I just found the following information from the Mifi 4510L users guide to update the firmware.

 

1. Go the mifi admin page:  http://mifi.admin page. 

 

2. Login into the page by using the default "admin" password.  Note: this is not the password for you mifi device.

 

3. You will then come to a screen that gives you instructions for downloading the latest firmware.  

 

 

Hope this helps everyone.

One more thing.  The login field is in the upper right of the screen.  Type the default "admin" password and you should be able to download the latest firmware.

I use my MIFI at home and it works PERFECTLY--not a singly problem in 3 months. I DON'T WANT THE UPDATE! However, now that its available I must manually logon the verizon admin site to initiate access. Is there any way to cancel these "update notifications"?

Having same problem and your solution IS NOT working.   Very very frustrating.

Same issue.  How lame is this entire system?  Could they be any less clear about how this is supposed to work?  And, of course, no help at all from anyone at Verizon.

 

If someone gets a solution, I'll circle back and check.

 

I am also confused as to whether I need to have the USB cable connected to do this or not?  Some form of FREAKING INSTRUCTIONS might have been nice!

The "admin" password finally DID work for me.  It leads you to a download link.  Then you install drivers, restart, plug in the device via USB and run a small app that does the update.  Seems faster...
