Read Member F470953 GAIL RUSSELL's Review of the Tech Connect+ Sprint MIFI Plan Below:

Signed up for FMCA Tech Connect+ and taking advantage of the Sprint Unlimited Hotspot Plan

I would say I started with Hotspot Authorization at 11:30AM, it is now 8PM and my Hotspot Battery is at 32%.

I am very pleased with both the Franklin R-910 Hotspot and the Sprint unlimited data plan. Everything is working flawlessly. I am in a rural area, 30 miles from the nearest city (Buffalo, NY) and I have had enough signal strength to do everything I wanted to do on my computers & tablets and ereaders, fast & flawlessly.

I found the Hotspot intuitive to use and easy to operate. I even liked the way it felt with its rubber armour coating! After 8-1/2 hours of continuous running, the Hotspot feels cool to the touch all over. If I had to tell one Hotspot fault, it would be the display screen font type is very small, making it hard to read.

Tomorrow I will play around with more of my WiFi capable devices and let you know what I think. The unlimited data plan is just great to have! No more running to public hotspots for me like when my old data plan was getting near its limit. I am in Computer Nerd Heaven!

Wi-Fi network now showing up

Dear FMCA Computer Geeks:

I use a Sprint card for Internet access while traveling. When that signal is not strong enough I have been able to use Wi-Fi connections provided by campgrounds.

Recently, while at home, Wi-Fi connections that previously were visible on "available network connections" were not showing up anymore on my laptop. I am able to still use the sprint card, but it's not working as well as it did in the past. I don't know what happened.

Because we run a home business while traveling, we really need to be able to use a Wi-Fi connection as a backup to the Sprint card. I use a Toshiba laptop with Windows 7.

Rick Rickert

Rick,
 
If no wireless networks are showing up, then most likely your built-in adapter has gotten turned off.

There is a switch on your laptop to turn off the adapter to prolong battery life. It may be hard to find, and sometimes it is a function key combination. Look for a button or a switch around the edges of the laptop. Often there is an indicator light to tell you when it is on.
 
If that is not the case, click on the Windows "start" button and type "wireless."  You will get results that will allow you to view devices. Make sure your wireless device is working properly.
 
There are many reasons your Sprint card may not be working as well as in the past.  More users in your area will decrease your available bandwidth. The Sprint tower might be having problems. New buildings or other types of interference could be to blame. Check to see that your device drivers are up-to-date. Re-orient your computer to see if performance improves.
