    Hello everyone.
    Looking to setup a network with a hotspot.
    I have:this hotspot modem and
    this router
    and what i'm going for is a setup like this:
    [​IMG] (thanks to the original poster for this image).
    I apparently have very little knowledge on what i'm doing here, I've been trying at this for about a week when i have had time and after about 5 failed attempts, the most i've managed to accomplish is getting my router to connect to the hotspot. I'm actually at the office so i apologize about the lack of detail at this time. when i get to a pc I edit/update this post.
    any info. helping me in the right direction would be appreciated.

    You need a wireless bridge. Some routers can do this. I do not think the one you pictures can.

    new question.
    would the zoom 4504 work?
    i recently purchased this 4g router thinking this was the better option.
    and i would need a bridge? this likely?
    i was informed at the local store that i would need a repeater, that's why i bought it.
