Hello to all. I can use the Maestro using my apple cellphone as a hotspot however if I try to use my Verizon Jetpack It wont find the radio. Any ideas on this?
One more question. Is there any way to have the Maestro authenticate on those wireless sites that require web page authentication?
Thanks....

Wes,

I have no issues with my Verizon Mi-Fi device so not sure what the issue is there.  With regards to Wi-Fi that requires authentication through a captive portal, you can use a travel router, such as the
TP-Link N300.  Unfortunately there is no native way to do this within the Maestro.

Thanks Dave. Didn't now if there might be a hidden menu somewhere. I happen ti have a TP-link so that should do the trick...

Some Jet Pack MiFi's have issues with running Flex SmartLink the Verizon 791L works very well for me, a week or so ago there was another thread on this we talked about this very topic.
Try a different model JetPack and see if you can find one from your provider that will work.

Hi! I stopped by the Verizon store today. I have a Verizon hotspot Ellipsis Jetpack 905a. It’s just OK.

7730L is the newest one they tell me. It will work with 3g and 4g unlike my Ellipsis. Only 4g.

Does anyone have experience with the Maestro and the 7730L (btw it’s on sale for $99.95 right now)

Thanks and 73

So, I started having issues with all my devices outside the network using Smartlink. Checked the ports on the router and come to find out the 6500 was handed a new IP Address. Set it static and redirected the ports and all seems good! Thanks for all the helpful comments...
