Problems with 4510L and web browsing

Here's one for everyone, every now and again, general web browsing (facebook, etc), stops working. Browser just sits there trying to connect to the site. Now here's where it gets interesting. I set my browser up to use a proxy (in this case, a private one back at home, not on port 80), and voila! Browsing works again, turn this off, and browsing is again broke. Restarting the MiFi works for a coupla minutes, then returns to this. I know I'm nowhere near my data cap, and everything else (IRC, Skype, etc) work just fine.

Re: Problems with 4510L and web browsing

This sounds like a new one.  Perhaps your MiFi is having a temporary routing problem behind the scenes that the proxy is able to resolve.

Do you have the same problem with multiple browsers?

First thing I would suggest would be a level 3 reset to restore the default settings on the MiFi.  Test it out in this configuration for a while and see if the problem re-occurs.  You might also want to try reinstalling your browser /delete temp files if you are having the problem with a specific one.

Level 3 Reset

  1. Power on the MiFi
  2. Remove the back cover
  3. Press and hold the Reset button next to the battery for 10 seconds 
    a. Paper clip seems to work best for pressing the reset button
    b. Watch the MiFi E-Ink display to see if all the icons are displayed
  4. Release the Reset button
  5. Reassemble the MiFi
  6. Test your connection
