I have an ipad and am using the app slingbox on it.  When I hook up to the wireless in our office from the ipad I can use slingbox with no problems.  I also have a 5 spot 4g Verizon wireless device.  
When I connect to this from the ipad I can get the internet to work fine but I cannot get the slingbox to work.  Any ideas?

Did you setup the slingbox for remote viewing?

Yes.  I have a laptop with slingbox on it and it can connect to my verizon card and it works fine.  Only the ipad is having trouble.  I used to have at&t 3g service with the ipad and it worked fine on that as well.  I can connect to slingbox from ipad when I am at starbucks fyi.

It is possible that the Verizon network is blocking your Slingbox traffic.

I found out that ipad with slingbox can only use 3g to connect.  Here is the next question.  I have a Samsung 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot.  It shows that it can connect to 3G and 4G.  Is there a way on the device or in the software to tell it to connect to 3G manually?

According to Samsung, you will have to call the provider to get the device to work on 3G.
