My TL-WR802N router connects to my home wifi router with no problem. I tried to change the wifi source to my Wifi hotspot on my Samsung Android phone. The TP_Link router shows the phone as available. I put in the password required by the hotspot and rebooted the router. It never acquired the wifi hotspot. Any ideas would be apprecited.

Interesting. Sorry I have no answer but we seem to share the same problem. I can get my WL802N to connect to my home router and my wife's iPhone but not to my own iPhone. I have tried resetting everything (all the usual tricks) to no avail. Everything else connects to my phone but not the WL802N. I have an MR3040 as well and it connects just fine. I replied here to perhaps get some help as well. I see you are KN4HH, I am KC6N. Are we doing the same thing, connecting a SharkRF OpenSpot?

Dave, KC6N

Hotspot mode can't accept wireless with a wireless password.
Disable the authentication of the phone hotspot and choose dynamic IP for WAN Connection Type on TL-WR802N.
