Hello.

I am trying to access this link, but a white page is displayed:


https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Mobile_Broadband

I tried using my second computer, but I got the same result.

How can I access the resources behind the link? Is there a problem from my side?

Sorry if I posted in the wrong place.

Thank you.

I don't see anything about Mobile Broadband mentioned at https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php or at https://forum.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Tutorials. Perhaps you are looking for an obsolete link, for a page that is no longer there?

Certainly if you search for forum posts mentioning "tether" or "tethering" or "hotspot" you'll find many discussions of connecting a dd-wrt router wirelessly to a mobile/cell-phone hotspot. I think the key is Client Mode. See the tutorial at https://forum.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Client_Mode.

It doesn't mean that it isn't there, you've just not looked carefully enough.

Category:Hardware, SubCategory:USB, Article:Mobile Broadband.

The article displayed a white page for me as well until I logged into the wiki..

I didn't even know there was such a thing as logging into the wiki! In any case, apparently I exist as a user only for the forum. I get "no such user" from the wiki. You can probably imagine what I think of that arrangement.

Is someone editing it or did someone change access to that article? I've never had to log into the wiki site. I'll relieve you of the burden, Surprised. It's bullsh*t. You're welcome.

Well, truth be told, the wiki login is a separate mechanism altogether, and that's not such a problem, however, when pages go white like the OP mentioned, that is, in fact, bullsh*t. The wiki is meant to be publicly viewable, and privately editable. Could be worse, could be moose sh*t or chicken sh*t? Razz Wink Cool

I guess someone from the dd-wrt company/shop has been tampering with it.
I just happened to find the workaround for getting access to a wiki page that I am the creator of and am the only one who has updated it... Confused
