Here are the basics of my situation. I am at a location that has free public wifi that you can connect to and then log into with your user name and password. Basically you choose 1 of 2 networks, connect, it pops up a browser window, you log in to the web browser (like a hotel), and you're online. There is no security on the network like WPA/WEP.
I am in a location that the wifi signal does not reach very strongly plus I am inside a structure that further degrades the signal. I purchased a TP LINK WA701ND v2, pretty basic device with 1 antennae. Also purchased a better antennae which is currently run out the window and onto the roof. It can pick up a fairly strong signal to the public wifi, between 27-30 dB. This registers between 85-95% when I check the settings on the repeater.
I must be missing something obvious though because when I try to connect to it I get a limited signal or under some scenarios I get a connection but can't get on the internet or connect to the login server for the public wifi. I will include some screenshots for my settings below. Really need a good guide for this or maybe just a few adjustments, no idea.
Thanks for any help.
