You really don't need VZAM in linux to use MBB. You can direct-dial a connection easily using PPP. The settings are as follows:

 

Phone #: #777

User:yournumber@vzw3g.com

Pass:vzw

 

Example, if your device's # is 212-555-1234, the username would be 2125551234@vzw3g.com

 

Mind you this will just give you a connection, no usage info, network stats or signal meter.

Does that give you 3G?  I find it unbelievable that Verizon is unwilling to release VZ Access Manager to it's regular customers.  It's like we are second class citizens.

Yes, if you have the signal strength for 3G, you'll be able to use it for your connection.

Hi - your responses seem to indicate that I can get my linux laptop with built in wireless to connect to my 3G mifi2200 somehow by dialing a number #777 etc.  This used to work when I had a USB wireless device with vzaccess Manager loaded on my windoze box, but i dont see how it would work with the mifi2200 which is a hotspot that my computers connect to.

 

Can you explain to me the steps to get  a linux laptop to connect see my mifi2200 so I can use it to get to the internet?

 

Thanks

 

Mike

For a mi-fi, just use wifi and don't connect to the USB cord
