I just purchased a VX6100 and a MOK at a Verizon Store. I followed
the install directions to a Tee. To my surprise, the install went
well and I connected via VZAccess Manager to the high speed network
without a hitch with very good connection speeds. The dial up portion
with Quick 2 net did not work using the wireless copies of my
existing connections. I was able to get my ISP, AT&T, to answer and log
on but I couldn't get connected to ALL my mail servers. I figured I
would try to figure out the problem later and turned off my laptop.

Upon rebooting, my desktop was trashed, I couldn't get IE to open
even though I was connected to my usual DSL connection. I removed
everything I installed and after tweaking some desktop settings and
fonts etc, I think I'm back to normal.

I'm running XP professional SP2. Anyone know what happened?

I can make a pretty good guess on this first part (the second I have no
idea about).

Many mail servers will only allow you to connect if you are coming
from an IP address on their network (this is to block what is called
snmp relay which is exploited by spammers to use other's resources).
When you use MOK you are originating from VZW's network and
your source IP address is one of their's. The mail server is probably
rejecting you for this. Some mail servers require authentication
(userid and password) and do not reject on source IP address.

There are a number of these services (with servers) that you can
subscribe to for a fairly small fee. If you want IMAP I can recommend
fastmail. Free with ads or a one time $14.95 charge for basic
membership (POP3 is more and a yearly fee). I use a different POP3
email service for $15 a year (promo price. I think it's $20/yr now).
It gives me a permanent email address and I simply have it forwarded
to whatever ISP I happen to have or work or both, etc. A side effect
is that I can use their mail server for outbound email from any IP address.

Thanks. I didn't have a problem getting email via VZAccess Manager. It
went perfectly. It's using Outlook Express with the accounts that I use
when I'm on DSL or WIFI that have been configured with the proper server
settings. It was the Quick 2 net that didn't work properly. But the main
problem was my system got trashed on reboot.

I've spent a good deal of time on this problem and I noticed an old post
in the archives about Google Desktop being involved in the problem.

So I removed Google's Desktop and reinstalled most of the MOK. High
speed access worked fine but I won't check Quick2Net until later. I also
rebooted and my system is fine, but I no longer am using Google's
Desktop Search.

Thanks for looking in on the problem

The problem was Venturi - Nowhere in the installation instructions were
there warning about your browser looking to use VZW Server when Venturi
is running. Here's a quote from Venturi's web site

<<As shown below in Figure 2, the Venturi Client intercepts a request
from your Web browser and passes it to a Venturi Server located in the
Verizon Wireless network. The Venturi server applies the most advanced
optimization technology available to the transmitted information and
then sends it to the Venturi Client, which decompresses the data and
passes it to your browser. >>

Apparently Venturi needs to be manually turned off if you're not
connected with your cell phone to VZW. If you use your regular
connection like DSL etc. Your browser won't work. It's supposed to be
automatic but it wasn't in my system.

I'll reinstall Venture and try it later but it looks as though that was
the problem.
