Playing Teal using LTE through phone to play on laptop?
Is this possible? Iím at a remote work site where my company has blocked all gaming IPs (even P1999 forums) on the company wifi, but I have 4 bars of LTE. I keep getting ďthis site canít be reached. Serverís IO address could not be foundĒ error when trying to access the forums or pretty much any website other than yahoo. (Iím typing on my phone right now.

I donít understand why I can access the site on my phone, but not my laptop which is using my phone as a hot spot.

Has anyone used a phone as a hotspot to play?

I canít load a VPN onto my laptop to play because itís a company laptop and I donít have an admin PW. I had to get admin to type in the PW to load EQ, but that was back in town so I canít get a VPN now unless itís on my phone.

I suppose I could get a VPN on my phone and then try and connect to the company Wifi?

Any ideas?

Currently, I canít connect to the server login through my phoneís hotspot. Says to check my connection. Connection to the server could not be reached error.

When I connect my laptop to the company wifi, I can get to the server select screen, but when I try to get to character select screen, I get an unknown error. But it’s one step past where I can get to while using my phone as a hotspot.

Most company laptos run through a corporate VPN, wehter your using LTE or not. At least I know mine does. If this is the case I believe that is your problem. It won't matter if if you use your personal phone or not if you have to rout through your corporate VPN. If I'm understanding you correctly.

I can run through my employers network using my personal laptop with no problem, just not any company provided machine. That being said, my employer may be different

I’m using my phone connecting to an AT&T tower using the LTE. That’s what I was describing in the first two paragraphs.

But was it the company laptop?

I have no problem connecting via a mobile hotspot on AT&T. Do it regularly.

Yeah, it’s a company laptop. But I can manually connect to company WiFi or my phone. I usually use the laptop remotely.

I connect to the game on my personal laptop using my phone as a wifi hotspot all the time and it works great unless I have really poor signal. If I try to connect to the game on my works wifi, I can get to the server select, but when I try to load the server and get to the character screen, I get an error (I don't remember exactly what). What I am saying, I guess, is that I suspect the problem is related to the laptop rather than the phone. Whether there is a VPN as someone said, or if there is some sort of content filter loaded locally, that would be my guess.

Pick up a cheap netbook and run it through that. You'd be surprised what they can do. The only minor freezing I had with mine a few years back was when a monk pulled "upstairs" in Plane of Hate.

ATT shouldn't be blocking you from playing a game on their network. So, maybe it's that laptop that has some software on it that stops games from being played. I mean does it have everything stripped from it game wise? If it's running something like that you would have to have the admin pass to turn it off. If it's a older version of windows they normally have programs to get past any windows password.

Also for 30 bucks you get unlim talk and text and like 500mb high speed and unlimitied data after that... the unlimited is super slow, but i was able to play eq, surf forums, and imageboards on that connection. verizon though the others i dont think are unlimited .
