4g Stick limited connectivity

I have had Clear for 2 years, and recently changed to netzero, both of which use the Wimax network.

I plugged in the Netzero 4G stick and it worked fine, once.

Since then, I plug it in, it receives full signal and green connection strength, but I get a "Limited connectivity" error and no internet access.

It worked 2 days ago, and I have installed no updates since.

Things I have attempted so far:

- I have turned off wifi

- I have tried various USB ports

- I have deleted the RNDIS from Device Manager and re-plugged in the stick, to let it reinstall.

- I have hard-reset the 4g stick via the pen-hole on the device

- I have power cycled my laptop by removing the battery and power for 20 minutes

- I have confirmed that IP address and DNS server are set up to auto assign for IPv4.

I am in the same area that Clear has worked for 2 years, and where Netzero worked the first time I used it. I have pinged and the device is sending and receiving correctly.
