Alright, so here's the rundown:
I just got this new 4G wireless mobile hotspot, the black one at the bottom of this link:
I've basically been trying to get wireless Internet to work at my job for the past month to no avail. For some reason or another, even though I have a healthy wireless signal emitting from my hotspot, it still won't let me connect to the net, and I have no idea why. We tried everything with my last provider with nothing working in the end, so I had to return the device to the manufacturer and get a full refund.
I have a buddy who works in the same exact booth that I usually do, but his hotspot/whatever always works and never has trouble connecting to the net successfully. In fact, starting today I am using the same exact company and service as him!
I just don't understand how a 3G or 4G hotspot doesn't work while his does, especially since we're now using the same provider and everything. It's very confusing :?
Just out of curiosity, is there a drastic difference between a hotspot and a hub? I have a plug outlet at all of my work stations; would having/using a hub be favorable to a hotspot?
Also whenever I use my devices I says the wireless is connected but the page never loads, but my laptop is more specific and tells me there's a DNS communication error. Would usin a hub fix this issue?
I'm just stumped how I can write this topic using my phone's 3G signal, but get zero response from my hotspot's superior 4G service!
Any help is appreciated
