The error page just states that "could not find URL" try to login with BING and that dose not work either.

I've had that happen to me in the past and found my router had changed the IP address for the openspot.
Since the router keeps track of many devices on my home network it had reassigned the address the shark was on to something else.
I just logged into my home router and looked at connected devices to get the correct IP number, then put the number in my browser's address field and it took me right to the openspot.
Somehow there is a way to make those addresses permanent but I haven't really worried much with it since it rarely gets changed.

Make sure openSPOT is connected to the same router your browser device is connected to with an Ethernet cable. If entering http://openspot.local/ in your browser does not work then please open the web interface by entering openSPOT's IP address in your browser. You can find openSPOT's IP address by looking at the DHCP client list in your router's web interface, or you can use an IP or MDNS scanner app.

OK. I have Empty my Cache and still can"t get to http.//openspot.local or http.//openspot to set up my openspot. the message is "THE DNS NAME DOES NOT EXIST" ERROR CODE: INET_E_RESOURCE_NOT_FOUND.

THIS THING IS NO GOOD TO ME IF I AM UNABLE TO USE IT. What can I do so I can use OPENSPOT. Since I live in a location with no repeater service? HELP PLEASE
