I'm in the UK using Public BT WiFi. I have many WiFi enabled devices which do not work with this WiFi because it uses a login page. My workaround is to connect my laptop to the BT WiFi, log in through the network page, and then create a Mobile Hotspot on my PC and connect everything through that. Therefore I can have my own private network where I use setup things like Chromecasts and Sonus Speakerd.
I would like to connect my various WiFi-enabled devices through a router instead of a Mobile Hotspot on my laptop. How must a router be configured to behave like my laptop's Hotspot? Are there any features or wireless standards that must be supported by the router to both connect to a wireless network and simultaneously accept wireless client connections?
One last and possibly really stupid question: Due to BT Wi-Fi giving similar speeds to each device it connects can I get a router to connect to BT Wi-Fi multiple times and then output that through one Wi-Fi connection for increased speeds? I sorry if that is a stupid question but I thought I would ask anyone because I would like to know?
