IP Type ARP on MiFi 2200 with Windows 7

I just purchased a MiFi 2200 device for my Windows 7 laptop. When tethered and using VZ AccessManager everything works just fine. However, when I try to use the MiFi 2200 via WiFi I get limited connectivity and cannot connect to the Internet.


As a means of testing I tried connecting to the MiFi using WiFi and a Windows XP laptop. I connected successfully and could surf the web without any issues.


I went to the Admin Console of the MiFi and checked the LAN settings. It showed two entries ... one for the Windows 7 laptop and the other for the Windows XP laptop. The windows XP laptop connected with an IP Type of DHCP, the Hostname was populated correctly, and the IP Address ( was within the DHCP range of the MiFi Device. The Windows 7 laptop connected with an IP Type of ARP, did not populate the Hostname, and was assigned an IP Address ( outside of the MiFi DHCP range.


I would like to know how to increase the DHCP Range of the MiFi device to allow for an IP Type ARP connection.

Re: IP Type ARP on MiFi 2200 with Windows 7

Figured it out. My WiFi adapter was retaining the last IP Address it had obtained ... in my case my home network.


Go to a command prompt and do an ipconfig -release followed by ipconfig-renew.


It pulls an address from the MiFi from the DHCP range and works perfectly.
