New MIFI device, installed VZ Manager successfully, but WIFI on laptop not working

I installed the VZ Manager for my new MIFI device, seemed to install ok, as I was able to connect to it.  However, when I tried to open the Internet Explorer window, nothing...it was not giving me access to the internet.  Did I miss something?

If you are connecting fine with the MiFi plugged into your laptop with VZ AccessManager but it doesn't work as a WiFI device try the following:

 

My WiFi adfapter 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.
