***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community! Beginning the evening of Sunday 12/4, both Communities will be placed in read-only mode. You’ll still be able to visit the Communities and browse content, but login will be disabled. On the afternoon of Monday 12/5, all users will be able to log into the new Verizon Community. We expect the new Community to be fully functional the morning of Friday 12/9. Additional details can be found in the Announcements board and under Featured Topics!

Hello Kelldog11,

From your description, this seems like the computer cannot obtain an IP address from your phone. Make sure your DHCP option is enabled on your computer. To help you further, what's your operating system?

We know how important it is to stay connected. Is this only happening with your computer, or all devices that you attempt to hook up to your mobile hotspot?
