Possible Resolution to MiFi 2200 connection issues when using WiFi

I was having issues connecting to the Internet with my Windows 7 laptop using the MiFi 2200 as a WiFi device.

 

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.

 

Hope this works for everyone!

Maybe also check specific for the 2 different tcpip protoclas loaded.. here is the solution that resolved my connection issue:

 

 

 

Updated Vista Home sp1 to sp2 ( 450+MB download )

Updated Atheros AR5007 drivers to 7.6 , 2008 release... there might be a newer release but I dont want to jack with it now that I'm working.

Check in network connections for wireless connection.

     I had 2 TCPIP protocols loaded. v6 and v4 .. v4 had IP and DNS hard set. changed both over to auto assign

WALLA Mifi is now working wirelessly.
