News reader asks for server name - use air card

Message 1 of 2

I just installed a news reader and it asks for the server name.  I'm using the verizon wireless air card.  When at my desk top I use "news.charter.net", without quotes and no problem.  I don't know what to use for the verizon wireless air card.  I tried news.vzw.com and news.verizonwireless.com but neither work.  I can't access newsgroups using my laptop and the air card.

Thanks for any assistance.

The News server settings are..

News (NNTP) server: news.verizon.net
Your Verizon Online user name
Your Verizon Online password

*

Please note while in the URL it clearly says FIOS, I have DSL and those settings work fine here..
