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!

Dear FMCA Computer Geeks:

I have tried on multiple occassions to access the Internet while at a campground and was unsucessful.

LadyCarol:
 
I'm guessing that you are trying to use a campground's Wi-Fi service?
 
There are three parts to a successful Internet connection using Wi-Fi.
 
1. Your equipment. That is, your computer and Wi-Fi adapter. The adapter is usually built-in, but it can be an add-on. Adapters need to be enabled and configured properly.

2. The campground's equipment. Their access point creates the hotspot. You might need a key or password to connect. You must be close enough to receive AND send data to the hotspot. Hotspots are not all the same. Some are better than others.

3. The campground's connection to the Internet Service Provider. A high-bandwidth Internet connection allows more users at the same time and provides faster response.
 
All three of these elements have to work properly with each other for successful Internet browsing.
 
It is possible to connect to the campground's hotspot, but if they are not connected to their ISP, you cannot browse. You don't have any control over that.
 
Have you been able to use Wi-Fi in other locations? If so, and nothing else has changed, you are probably configured properly. The problem may be at the campground.
 
Is your adapter on? By that, I mean do you see the campground's signal called the SSID? Are you able to connect to their hotspot? 
 
There may be additional information to enable you to complete the connection, especially if there is a fee involved.
