For over a year I was flawlessly picking up 1 of either 2 open Xfinity neighborhood hotspots.
My repeater no longer can pick them up when I scan them on the 192. set up page in the browser. Scans all the locked signals though. Seems something changed. However the cellphone and laptop are picking them up with great internet.

I have done factory reset, installed latest firmware and troubleshooted 4 times over 4 hours with Hawking non -English speaking technicians. Very frustrating.
Searched the internet to look for similar recent problems since then but couldn't find any.
Hawking couldn't answer this question.

Is there anyway to manually connect to the hotspots with the information obtained from the cell phone or pc?

Any help is deeply appreciated.
