Not to long ago thinking of having high speed internet on the go on any of your devices was only a dream. With the invention of mobile routers accompanied by an evdo card this was somewhat possible the only problem was that you had to have a constant source of power for the router to connect multiple devices.

With the new MiFi router from Verizon wireless this is now a dream come true, it will create a hotspot that travels with you. While it is not cheap to get this service, it is definitely worth it especially if you travel around the united states or your business requires you to be mobile. The MiFi router goes for $150 with a $50 mail-in rebate. Below is a video that will walk you through the configuration of the device and also show you how it works.

Finally the internet in the palm of your hands.

 

It mentions in the instructions that the software for the vaccess manager comes preloaded so when you connect the device open “My computer” and it will show you an additional CDROM there, double click to open it and the software will be there. If you prefer just CLICK HERE to download the VACCESS MANAGER software.

 

 

 

Technical Information from Verizon about MiFi:

You can connect more devices.

  • Use Mobile Broadband on a notebook or netbook.
  • Connect your netbook, camera, MP3 player, media player, PDA, portable gaming system or any other Wi-Fi–enabled device.
  • Provide a wireless hub for up to five devices at one time.

You can get more done with multiple connection options.

  • In Wi-Fi mode:
    • Connect up to five Wi-Fi–enabled devices at once.
    • Use the lithium-ion battery for up to four hours on the road or 40 hours of standby time.*
    • Plug the device directly into a wall outlet for extended usage time.
  • In USB mode:
    • Connect the MiFi device to your notebook via the included USB cable to use it as a modem.
    • Extend the battery life of your work session by connecting the device to your notebook via a USB cable.

 

  • Enhanced online activity. NovaSpeedâ„¢ technology improves simultaneous upload and download times so you can transfer large files with minimal interruptions or buffering.
  • Sleek design. Small enough to carry in your shirt pocket, it features an internal antenna so there are no outer parts to break.
  • On-board training and support. The device comes loaded with VZAccess Manager and user guides for Windows® and Mac.® No CDs required.
  • Plenty of standard features. These include auto-install, autoconnectivity, Network Driver Interface Specification (NDIS) support, VPN capability, and a removable lithium-ion battery. You’ll also get two-way text messaging when you connect via USB.
  • Full-blown security. Keep would-be trespassers from using your connection with password protection, CDMA authentication and identification, dynamic Mobile IP (MIP) key update, Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) firewall, VPN pass-through, and more.

      Great article, but this wouldn’t seem to work together with my router ip, any helpful hints?

    15. Raenell Says:

      This is unbelievable. We are used of a MiFi router that has only a single capacity to gives us the internet we need. But this one is multi dimensional and it can also be used on the gadgets. That’s what makes this stuff amazing and very unbelievable. I am sure this will come a long in the market and many will support this product. That’s for sure. This article and this blog is very informative. Great job by the by Aramis and Verizon too, off course.

      Now is the best time. Place to sell for most profit: clssgariit. ebay charges about 15% fees (listing,sales fees and paypal fees). But, make sure when you meet the buyer you take a person with you and meet in a secure location.The 32GB’s go for around $ 400 depending on where you live. just post the clssgariit ads with lots of images. use imageshack to upload picks and paste the HTML img codes in the ad description. Also, use all 4 image slots given by clssgariitiPhone 5 DOESNT Release next month. It releases in October
