I can't connect to the internet.  I have excellent service - five bars; however, it is saying that there is no internet connection.  I don't know what to do.  I have a brand new Gateway laptop that I'm using.  Could someone please help me?  Thanks!

Hello,

 

I am having a similar problem both with my laptop and iPod Touch.  Is there any software I can download for the iPod Touch like the VZAcess software?

 

Thanks,

 

Mark

You need to activate the MiFi.

You can do that via VZAcess Manager, but I activated mine by connecting via WiFi, using the SSID and "password" noted on the sticker on the unit.

 

Then, connecting to the default IP address http://192.168.1.1 and logged in with the default password of admin.

I was presented with a screen that asked me to activate.

 

I forget the details of that operation, which doesn't seem to be documented online, but then I was able to use the MiFi.

 

I think it is a wonderful gadget, and could have saved the money I paid for iPad 3G verses WiFi if I had known.

 

I have connected to Windows 7, iPad, iPod Touch, and Blackberry without VZAcess Manager.
