Hi, I live in a dorm and I just got a beryl for the specific purpose of repeating the dorm’s wifi so that i can have my own home network.
My dorm’s wifi is a hidden SSID and after successfully logging in for the first time, i would be brought to a page to enter my credentials. After that is done, then would i be able to surf the internet. This credential page is only seen once whenever a new device connects to the hidden ssid.
When i tried to use beryl to connect to this hidden ssid, i wasn’t successful. Scanning obviously doesnt detect the hidden SSID so i clicked on other and manually entered the hidden SSID name and password. I left the channel as 1 as i didnt know what channel i should use. When i tried to connect, it will try very long and then become unsuccessful and as a result i would lose connection with the beryl 2.4ghz SSID too. The beryl 2.4ghz ssid would disappear and in the end, everytime i would have to reset the router so that my imac could detect the beryl 2.4ghz ssid again…
What could be the problem? I’ve already spoofed my beryl’s mac address with my imac and logged in the hidden ssid and entered my credentials, because i anticipated that there might be problems getting that credential page with some new devices. So that credentials shouldn’t be the prob. And obviously I cant make the hidden ssid visible because i’m not the IT administrator of the dorm.
