Re: Connecting DStv wifi connector

No pardon needed... I'm almost there myself Smiley Very Happy Should've said "connect the laptop to the DSTV WiFi adapter with a network cable, then do the dstvlocal thing" . 

 

Glad you're sorted

Now I,m lost.

The wifi router is all I have. How do I connect a network cable (and where)?

Don't connect via WiFi to the DSTV connector, use a network cable. That's why you have to kill your laptop wifi first

Connecting DStv wifi connector

Hi,

I moved to a Retirement Village and installed a Huawei wifi (mobile router) from Telkom and am now connected to  the internet.

My old wifi connector from my old adsl setup now needs to be connected to this new wifi. I connected it to my laptop as indicated in the setup instructions,  but I can't get my laptop to open http://dstvwifi.local/. The message reads (as far as I remember) "dstvwifi.local refused to open".

The directions tell me to switch off my laptop's wifi, but that sounds crazy. how can I connect to http://dstvwifi.local/ without a wifi connection?

Any advice?
