Background : My ISP has a web based authentication scheme . So when I first try to browse any site , it goes to the isp login page. Once logged in , further requests to web pages work fine . ISP has given me a static ip (192.168.58.150) which I configure in my ip settings of my laptop. The DNS & Gateway have to be configured to 192.168.58.1 .
Problem : If i connect the isp cable to my laptop ethernet port , everything works fine . But if it is connected to my wireless router , where I have configured the exact same settings(ip/gateway/dns etc) as I have done in my laptop , and if I try to access internet from my laptop , it doesnt work . My browser says "Resolving" and stays there , while it should take me to the isp login page . Why is this happening ? The most confusing part is that the settings are exactly the same in router and the laptop , while laptop works , router doesnt .
