What is this? To repeat. Connection to 1 website always times out, won't connect. HP Chrome book and Chrome 39.0 browser suggest maybe a firewall or anitvirus problem. How can I see firewall settings?
Lets start by identifying which VZW device you are using. Please confirm the model number for us so we can understand what kind of problem you could be having. Or are you referring to a VZW netbook/tablet?
The actual VZW firewall that mobile broadband devices on the 4G LTE network rest behind is not accessible to the public. VZW doesn't make changes to the firewall that gets automatically applied to most accounts. Work arounds and exceptions to that rule are available.
Device I'm using is a Verizon Jetpack Mi-Fi- Hot Spot 5510L. Using a HP
Chromebook that only operates on a Wi-Fi- connection to access internet.
Have problems with cellphone also. Have contacted customer service at
website but haven't heard from them. Three diff browers on cell phone won't

Thanks for confirming that you are working with a 5510 Jetpack.
I tried connecting to this site on my 4510L Jetpack and was unable to access it. I then googled the URL and saw that it is a https:// site and tried again, same problem. I then connected to my alternative broadband connection outside of the VZW network and tried again, same results. Its starting to sound like there is a problem with the site you want to navigate to. I did a lookup on this domain and found many references suggesting it is inactive. Google cant even find it.
Double check your sources and contact the owner to see if you have been given the correct URL or not.
OK. Have to go thru their customer services on phone. Found an online test
to test ports. It said port 80 and port 443 seem to be blocked. Remembered
seeing this mentioned in connectivity tests Chrome runs when it has
problems connecting. Will update if get problem resolved. Thanks for your
help. Funny aside - did Google search for website and this appears there!

What test did you happen to run?
Port 80 is for http. Port 443 is for https. If both of these ports are getting blocked then you shouldn't be able to navigate to any website on the Jetpack. You must have targeted your port test at something more specific. If the website is currently offline like I suspect it is then that would explain why port 80 and port 443 access to the site are blocked (because its not actually available in the first place).
Not sure how you are able to Google this website. I have tried 3 different networks and cannot find it active on any of them. Sure doesn't look like it exists as you typed it to me.
Just Google searched website again. www.myvipselect.com had over 1300
matches. Website is for a prepaid debit card. Website ISP is Galieo
Processing in Salt Lake City,UT. Will call debit card customer service

Called tech support at cust svcs number. Just filled out a ticket!! Got
curious waiting. I believe problem was DNS resolutions. Attachments show
what I found. Two good websites: intoDNS.com and dsnviz.net suggested by
Google. The Connectivity Diagnostics pops up on my Google Chromebook when
connection times out.
