I have been using my router for 6+ months now and I have connected to dozens of hotels with no issues.
While traveling in Europe, I have been encountering a recurring issue with my router at select hotels. These hotels do not require an active portal. I am able to connect my phone directly to the wifi, and obtain a strong connection, by simply inputting the password.
However, when I attempt to connect via my router using the repeater function, I am unable to retrieve the IP Address, Gateway and DNS Server. Per the image below, it shows “Getting…” indefinitely.
I’ve tried rebooting my router, restarting my computer, phones etc. At some hotels, after attempting these actions 40+ times (yes I will try again and again for hours) I will all of a sudden connect with no explanation but I will need to repeat that process again the next day as the connection will eventually be lost.
I was also able to avoid the issue in one location by connecting my ethernet cord directly into the wall but thats rarely an option.
Does anyone know what’s happening here? It maybe occurs in 10% of locations where I use my router.
*If its not already obvious, I am not technical, so if you have any ideas on a fix, I’d really appreciate it if are able to break it down into very basic steps
Router Type: AX3000 WIFI 6 ROUTER (GL-MT3000).
