    I have hp s7527c Just swithched from verizon usb 760 to thier 4510 mifi hotspot. spent a lot of timw with thier reps trying to get the desktop to connect to isp. My laptop (toshiba) and Ipad2 both connect with no problems. I have downloaded SP 3 to insure current OS Deskto does connect to Mifi but will not connect to IE isp.

    The 4510 is a wireless hotspot device. Does the desktop computer have a wireless networking adapter installed and working? Does it see the MiFi?

    What do you mean "cannot find isp"? ISP stands for Internet Service Provider. Verizon is your ISP, and you receive that service through the MiFi device. If you're successfully connecting to the MiFi, then what other problems are you having? Be specific as to exactly what happens.

    You are probably not getting a valid DNS server once you are connected to the Mifi. Try manually adding 8.8.8.8 to your Wireless adapters TCP/IP settings.
