    OK, I plan to cover my parent's house with wifi.
    In front of house there's public hotspot with http login (captive?).
    To buy user/pass login, we need to buy voucher. Cheap enough for $2 we can use it for 30 days (9Mb/9Mb ul/dl).

    I have 2 router, RT-N16 and RT-N53.
    RT-N16 (placed outside, in front of house, so can reach hotspot)
    WAN : DHCP
    LAN : (DHCP server enabled)
    Wireless 2.4 (eth1) : wireless client
    SSID : nanohp
    security : none
    NAT loopback : All
    NAT target : masquarade
    Mode : Gateway

    RT-N53 (placed inside, to cover house with wifi)
    WAN : Disabled
    LAN : (DHCP disabled)
    Gateway :
    Wireless 2.4 (eth1) : AP <<=== I want all tablets can have net connection
    SSID : myhouse
    security : WPA2 personal +AES
    NAT loopback : disabled
    NAT target : masquarade
    Mode : Router

    RT-N16 to N53 is wired.
    My tablet can connect to myhouse AP (wireless 2.4 Ghz of RT-N53).
    But when I tried to open, it can't reach redirected captive portal.
    What's wrong with my setup?

    I have tried to connect the tablet directly to hotspot, I open and the hotspot redirect to login page. I put the user/passw and can browsing normally.

    But when I go inside house and connect with RT-N53, the redirected page can't be reached.
    in Boat browser or Dolphin browser, the URL change from to redirected login page.
    But destination unreachable.

    My 2nd attempt will be replace the RT-N16U with miniPC/nanoPC and use ICS.
    But I prefer using RT-N16.

    Any help, please?

    I have tried login directly with my tablet.
    After successfully login, I copy the MAC and paste the tablet MAC into eth1 of RT-N16, does not work.
