    Verizon Novatel 620 issues

    Hey, just wanna start this thread for those people w/ issues with VZ access manager, and with software issues.
    Is anyone not using VZ access manager??? How do you use MS direct connect?> Is is more dependable???
    I started having issues w/ VZ when coming back from standby or hybernate. Also I'm not too sure about their new software update, I'm now using their old one again.
    Any info??? Thanks!

    I use there access software & it doesn't recover from standby or hibernation too, I have to close the app & reopen it to connect again.... have you found a way to connect automaticaly? I had it set up that way a while ago, before evdo.. It was 1xrtt or something like that... but that was on a different machine... I want to figure out a way to get it to connect anytime the computer is on.

    Yeah, the other day I called tech support, I was online then I stayed off the internet for about 15mins and then I checked again and it wouldn't connect. There seemed to be no connection, so I drove around thinking maybe 'cos I was in Jersey and I had poor reception. Nothing, I rebooted, reinserted the card, and still nothing.
    The tech told me to check network connections, it said "national access is connected", so he asked me if I had new software. I still have the old VZ Access so I decided to use that one, and ooalaah! It connected.
    For some reason now it's happening a lot more, everytime I go into hybernate is a hit or miss thing; it kind of defeats the purpose of having "always on" connection if half the time it doesn't work!

    There's an option in the preference pane that tells you "windows startup" and "connect automatically" so that always works for me. No issues with that.
    What we nn to figure out is to use windows dial up utility instead of VZ manager. After all, it's only a dial up connection, kind of like DSL.
    I'd like to compare those two approaches to see which one is more dependable, before when I was rebooting everytime I never had any connectivity issues, now that' I'm doing standby/hybernation I'm getting all these freaking issues!
    I really don't wanna keep rebooting 'cos I'm getting video issues, plus the boot up time it's annoying.
    Let's try to figure this out before the meet in Corona, right??!!!

    I know I did have it working before evdo through windows... it was something like #777 & then user name & password was like vzqw or somwthing like that... there was another time that the user name was your phone # & password was something else...I forgot what it was... verizon tech support trys to talk you out of hooking it up that way & I've had a tough time getting one of them to tell me again...

    I think they try to keep the bandwidth as open as possible, that's why when your idle with there software for like a minute the connection drops...not in the software though, so when you click on a new link it reconnects again... because of the digital connection it reconnects pretty quick, but still the latency gets to be annoying sometimes.

    there has to be a way to connect through windows & then maybe set up an intermitant ping to keep the connection alive.... I have a few other bigger problems to solve before the meet, but I defanatly want to get the connection better again...

    Well, I'mn gonna try the simple way, there's a plug-in in firefox that automatically reloads the page every so many seconds, that should keep the connection alive for a 'lil while. After all we're paying for UNLIMITED USE!
    I don't have DSL so my experience w/ dial-up window is ltd. maybe someone can give it a try. The best would be if we can hack into it to improve those "oh so restrictive" upload speeds, I guarantee u that those f*er keep it them low to avoid people web hosting.
    I also wanna try a router, have you done so??? U wanna try that for the meeting??? My wireless router is f*ed up....
    Let me know. With ICS in windows should be ez, I'm not sure, haven't tried it yet. Maybe we can setup a hotspot in Corona!

    try using RASSPY to see your actual User name and password then make a dialup connection through dial up networking similar to what was done here:

    well, I found the solution I want, check this out.... there are other evdo routers avilable too.... up over $600, but they make your whole vehicle into a hotspot whenever it's powered.....
