The mifi is using a private IP address behind the NAT firewall. You need to either purchase a public IP address or use a VPN setup to remotely access your home network through the mifi or Jetpack.

If your devices get an IP address and have an embedded web page for access, you might be able to use a web browser and the IP address.  Or there may be a device management app for access.  Do the devices' Admin?User Guides have any info on remote access/management?

I realize how important it is to stay connected to technology in your home, TCLIBERTY. I want to make sure the service Verizon Wireless provides is on the right track for your needs. Just to clarify, while you’re home and trying to use the MiFi directly, are you able to browse the internet successfully? What kind of devices are you trying to access remotely? Do those devices offer a web page for remote access?

Thank you

Jennifer,

Thanks for responding. I’m to trying to access my home devices remotely using mifi when I’m away from home. I have Netgear c6300 cable modem with wifi and a homerunner controller that I’m trying to get to. No luck so far.

Did you read my previous post? There is no luck. You can't remotely access your home network through the Verizon Wireless NAT firewall without changing your configuration with a public IP address or use a VPN setup.

You had provided that information earlier in the thread. Once I had read it two days ago, I knew you can't do what you want with the equipment you have and the Verizon Wireless NAT firewall.
