I live in a residence where Internet is provided via cable. Once the computer is connected to the cable, launching a browser will trigger an authentication, I have a username and password to enter, then the internet will be connected.
With a gateway (e.g. Wireless Cable Voice Gateway Model CBVG834G) and 2 cables, two PCs can connect to the Internet with my account at the same time.
Now the question is, I don't like the cable, and would like to create a wifi hotspot. It seems realizable with the same gateway. According to the instruction on page 2-4 of the manual:
Enter http://192.168.0.1 in the address field of your Internet browser. Log in to the gateway
with either of the default user names, MSO or admin... However, while connecting to the Internet successfully via cable and the gateway (e.g. google works), opening
192.168.0.1 oddly gives me an error on the browser:
Does anyone know what happened? Is it due to the authentication required by my residence? Is there any other way to build a hotspot of wifi?
PS: My system is MAC OS
