So, recently I decided to cancel the Internet subscription at my workplace, because I thought I'd be able to replace it with a cheaper alternative. So far, I haven't succeeded.
I have two tplink cameras, NC 220 and NC200, which were working perfectly when connected to the Wifi network. My thoughts were, if a modem/router works, a mobile hotspot also will. I created a hotspot in my mobile phone, using the data connection supplied by the carrier, and tried to connect the cameras to it.
I tried with one phone, and I was able to connect the cameras to the hotspot but not another phone or computer (to add the cameras with the app).
So I tried with a different phone, and exactly the opposite thing happened: I could connect another phone and computer to the hotspot but not the cameras (the light flashed green for a second but then turned red).
The most I could do was get an ip address of one the cameras and access it through the web server, I even got to the part where I can enter an address and password to add the camera to the cloud account but when I enter the data sometimes nothing happens, and the button that says Register turns blue as if I hadn't clicked on it; and other times I get an error message saying can not connect to Internet, check network settings.
By the way, Internet works fine on the phone.
Any ideas/suggestions? Anything is welcome!
