I'm trying to use a Sierra USB Connect 881 device to connect to internet while on the road. I can't seem to get it working. It works great on my XP Laptop but I'm trying to get away from anything windows.Anyone have a helpful idea.

If the Sierra to which you refer is Sierra Wireless, they have fantastic support, and you should do well talking to them. I worked with them some years ago, and they were excellent.

Verizon may not be able to help you with Linux, but Sierra should be able to tell you what's going on with the message and how to configure it from a generic, non-Windows point of view.
