"Great if you can't get DSL or cable."3.5 starson by chotigiri1966
Pros: Great range, works fine, no serious problems installing or using it so far
Cons: Supports 1 wired connection (via USB) and up to 5 wireless connections BUT NOT AT THE SAME TIME. You can either use it as a wireless hotspot or for one computer via USB, but not both at the same time!
Summary: I signed on with Verizon when they had unlimited data plans, so I'm grandfathered in luckily. I always used their USB modem to connect my desktop to their network. My wife recently purchased a laptop and wanted it on the Internet as well, so I called Verizon to see what I needed to do. They told me I needed the MIFI device. I was able to get it for free (sort of...I had to renew my contract with them). When I installed it on my desktop it worked fine. But the laptop would not see the wireless network. I called Verizon and they told me when its connected via USB, it disables the wireless mode so only one computer can be connected at a time. I ended up having to buy a wireless USB adapter for my desktop, but now both are on the internet and working fine. No real problems yet, but it does sometimes just stop for no reason.
