last night i spend another night testing the coova firmware. i've come a point that i begin to understand this stuff...Do i still got a live or what ? :)
Since i've really been messing around in changing IP addresses from chillispot , and LAN & WAN etc... i've come to maybe an interesting issue in the Administration pages.
After i changed the DHCP range from the hotspot i wasn't been able to connect to the internet. I didn't got redirected anymore to the login page.
the hostname localhost.coova.chillispot... was still pointing to the old IP address of the chillispot. Changing this hostname resolved my problem.
It seems that changing a lot of the IP settings, screwed up the hostname setting.
If this is really the case , it might be interesting to always change the hostname , after a change has been made the IP settings of the coova hotspot.
I could be wrong, but it might be interesting mentioning
