My system is mifi jetpack 5510l with 10 gb with android tablet teame to use less data


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.

Virgin broadband I have a locked Overdrive Pro C54 modem and cannot get it unlocked. I have a Samsung tablet and it will not pick up a signal from my hotspot.


By unlocked, if you mean you can not access the WEP or WPA code and wish to edit it it, the default user id and password for most routers is admin and admin or admin and password.

How to find out who has been using my mifi?


Your internet service provider is not going to have a clue who used your stolen mifi. Since this is a password protected device, the isp is going to assume the user is the owner and continue to provide service. So instead of asking your isp, ask yourself: "Who knew my mifi password?"

How do i get my sprint phone to work on wi-fi ?


sprint phone or samsung ?
Sprint offers high-speed WiFi service for existing Nextel customers, and provides an extensive network of hotspots in the United States at locations commonly frequented by business travelers, such as hotels, airports and conference centers.
Getting Sprint WiFi requires a Nextel customer account, connection-management software, a MyNextel user account and a computer that supports high-speed broadband.
Sprint WiFi plans include an unlimited WiFi hotspot and an unlimited PC access plan with a WiFi hotspot package.

Sign up for WiFi service through Nextel by calling 1-800-SPRINT1.
Download and install the Nextel Connection Manager software.
Nextel offers the WiFi version of the connection-management software at the Sprint Nextel website (see Resources).
Register your account via MyNextel on the Sprint Nextel website (see Below).

Samsung Epic 4G Phone into a Wi-Fi Hotspot

The Samsung Epic 4G smart phone allows you to convert your phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot and connect up to five devices.
Such a set-up will keep you from running around searching for an area that offers free Wi-FI. If you're stuck in an airport or staying overnight at a hotel, you won't have to pay extra for Internet service.
You can connect your laptop or other media device to your phone's Wi-Fi network.

Press the "Home" button, which looks like the outline of a house, on the bottom of your Samsung Epic 4G phone.
Click the "Menu" button to the left of the "Home" button.

Click the "Settings" icon, which looks like a gray box with a spoke in the middle.


Scroll through the list and click "Wireless & Networks."


Press "4G" until a check mark appears, indicating the 4G network is enabled.


Click the "Home" button.
The 4G icon will appear to the left of your signal bars in the upper-right corner of your screen.
The separate sets of bars above the 4G logo indicate the strength of your 4G signal.
When the bars above the 4G logo are completely gray and the 4G logo is white, you have a weak signal.
When you are no longer receiving a 4G signal, your 4G logo will be gray and a 3G logo will appear, indicating that the 3G network is now enabled. If both of the logos disappear, you are not receiving any signal.
You must have either a 3G or a 4G signal to use your phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Enable Sprint Hotspot
Press the "Applications" icon, a blue box with four whites squares in it, in the lower-right corner of your Samsung Epic 4G phone.

Press the "Sprint Hotspot" icon, which looks like a phone with two signal bars on the right side, until a check mark appears to the right of the icon, signaling the Spring hotspot function is enabled.
A pass-key allowing you to connect other devices to the phone's network will appear on the screen.
Write the pass-key down.


Enable Wi-Fi on your laptop or other device that you want to tether to your Samsung Epic 4G phone.


Search for the Wi-Fi network affiliated with your Samsung Epic 4G phone.
The name of the network will begin with "SPH-D700XXX."
To change the name of the Wi-Fi network affiliated with your Samsung Epic 4G phone, press the "Menu" button; the "Settings" icon; and "Device Name." Enter the new name for phone's Wi-Fi network.


Click the network affiliated with your Samsung Epic 4G phone on the device you want to tether to your phone'ss Wi-Fii network.
Enter the pass-key, and click "OK."
Your device will now be tethered to the Wi-Fi hotspot on your Samsung Epic 4G phone.

How to boost my mifi 220 signal


Since your signal goes up and down, I would suggest buying a large ham radio antenna, about 15 foot, and mounting it on a seesaw. On one end put a large automotive spring, and on the other end put your antenna. Then attach a very long copper stereo wire from the ham antenna directly to the mifi unit.

When you signal starts to go up and down, you can counter it by going out and starting the seesaw. Once it hits the spring, it will go back up and then return and so on. Your signal will still go up and down, but the seesaw action will counter the up and down motion.

That should improve your signal and be steady year round unless you get a large snow storm and your seesaw is weighted down by lots of snow. In that case, you will need to shovel the snow periodically, but you will have your mifi signal back to normal.
