Verizon mifi units just started using proxy & I can't!

Post by wagygirl » Wed Jan 04, 2017 9:02 pm

In my work at home I CANNOT use a proxy. Verizon broadband via mifi unit has suddenly started using a Proxy header in their service.
It now looks lke I am using a proxy off of Amazon.com because of the way they recently set it up.

Now I am being blocked from some of my work pages due to this recent proxy change. It started gradually about 2 weeks ago. I was able to shut down my tablet or mifi unit and it would be normal for a few days. Now it stays on the Proxy Header.
I will lose jobs over this!

http://whatismyipaddress.com/proxy-check for 54.200.62.139 comes up saying it is true on the Header.
http://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/54.200.62.139 says that it is through Amazon Technologies.
It also says that this IP assignment is Static.

This all has to do with Verizon having 45% ownership of Vodaphone and using those services for mifi units and regular mobile data for phone data.
This is my ONLY way to get a tablet or computer online, as I live off-the-grid.

How can I change my IP back to one of the hundreds used before?
I use android tablets with 5.1, 6.0 (both 10.1") & a Windows 7 laptop.
Chrome browser used in all of them.

I am not entirely computer lingo savvy or a tech geek.
Thanks.

Does the company you work for have a VPN that you can use?

That wont help.
Access to this page has been denied. Access via a Proxy/VPN/VPS is not permitted]

Some days my IP is Static others it is Dynamic.
Some, days, like today it is 2600:1010:b164:f4db:2922:73f4:d87c:1fc6 Verizon Wireless Broadband hiding under
54.200.41.155 Header is Proxy. Corporate Amazon Tecnologies. Host name ends in
amazonaws.com

Yesterday it was normal 70.214.33.52 with a Host name ending in vzw.com

How do I get it to stay on the vzw.com IP?

Sounds like your options are to contact Verizon and see if they can assist or try using a different carrier.

I have been trying to call them, but there isn't even a wait time. They changed one of their mobile plans without notice, and tons are calling to complain.
It's now, a wait till I can get ahold of a HUMAN representative. Grrrr.
