Openspot with TP link and hotspot

Post by Roberteod »

I finally got a hotspot from Freedompop and configured my TP Link in client mode. The openspot is showing that it is connected but I can't get the computer to go to the log-in page. I have tried changing the wifi connection to match the computer, but still nothing. It worked fine when the TP Link was paired with the computer. I think I am missing something but I don't know what. Thanks for any suggestions.

If the TP-Link is not in bridge mode, then it uses a separate network for Ethernet connected devices, so you won't be able to reach devices behind the TP-Link. If you can't switch the TP-Link to bridge mode, then you can create a port forwarding to the openSPOT's web interface port (80), so you'll be able to open the web interface by entering the URL http://tplinkip/main.html_gz (replace tplinkip with the IP address of the TP-Link).
