Spend less time playing online chess outside your house where you have to connect the MiFi Jetpack to your laptop and use your data plan and more time playing at home over your home network where you do not have to use the jetpack and your data plan.
As long as you have service and the jetpack is turned on it is transmitting a wifi signal. On the bottom right hand side of your computer screen is an internet icon--look where your time display is and this icon is just before the time. Click this internet icon and it should recognize the Jetpack signal. If it does, it will say "connections are available" right click on that and it will show available connections including the jetpack. Right click on the identified jetpack signal and then click on "connect" and enter the security key and now you should have full internet access. If, when you click on the internet icon, it does not say "connections available", then click on "troubleshoot" and let the device tell you what the issue is preventing connection.
If your phone supports tethering, you can set it up to be a WiFi-hotspot. You'll also need wireless network card. You can get a cheap USB one which will do fine, as the wireless speed will exceed your mobile carrier speed by far.
If you tell me what kind of phone you've got, I might be able to help yoou further.
It always helps to provide the Make and Model of Jetpack you are having issues with. Most Jetpacks have a reset button normally located under the back cover that you can hold down for 10 seconds with a paperclip to reset. You can also look at power management settings by logging into the admin page by typing 192.168.1.1 or my.jetpack in your address bar.
Well, sorry to say you have struck out, first it's Verizon, then a JetPack and finally D-Link. The only way I was able to get mine working was to switch to a Cisco device for the link, drop the D-link!
I had them and others. They do not work well and are not worth the money. If you have cable with a wifi hotspot option, you would be better off using that.. The Jetpack sucks big time. Cancel the mifi service.
