    I can connect to the internet when I am using my aircard but when I connect to wifi through the VZ access I can not get on the internet. "It is saying I am connected to WiFi". a box shows up asking me about dialing 777#. It worked a couple of days ago so i am sure I did something to a setting with out knowing.

    Is there a utility for the aircard that may have disabled the wireless utility and expect you to connect to wifi via the aircard utility - not used this particular card - But this used to be the case with the O2 utility and it needed to be stopped from starting when windows started and that allowed wireless to be used

    whats the exact details of the aircard - is this it - http://www.sierrawireless.com/en/productsandservices/AirCard.aspx

    can we have details of the vzaccess - is this it http://www.vzam.net/

    make and exact model of the PC

    I am not to good with any of this but I will try explaining. I have a VZ aircard 5750. When connect through the VZ access to the VZ wireless a box comes up and says connect verizon wirelss and then there is a box I have to click that say dial #777 then it connects. When I try connecting to a wifi using the VZ access it connects to the wifi but will not connect to the internet.

    What is the wireless network using for internet service? Your aircard connects you to Verizon's wireless broadband service. Wireless networking is completely different and separate and doesn't have anything to do with your Verizon service. If you're connecting to a wireless network, then that wireless network must have some kind of internet service, right?

    All I know is that I have to go through the VZ Access to get WIFI and to get on the VZ network for the air card. Before this happened I could just click on the wireless net works in the hotels I usually am at and it would connect and I would use that because it is faster that the aircard.. I am guessing that it must be a setting that I messed up. Wish I could give more info.

    The VZ Access Manager not only handles Verizon mobile wireless but also handles your Wi-Fi adapter?

    It shows all the wifi connections along with the VZ connection, I can choose either wifi or the VZ aircard to connect to.

    I cannot help with VZ Access, as I know nothing about it.
