connecting with a moblie hotspot might not be working because the kind of ip address on the hotspot and what is assigned to the computer do not match. this is kind of like a proxy. hotspots do work for some people but the connection is volatile.

connect to a wi-fi router instead if you can.

I tried it and still got the same result. Do you think the type of internet I'm using is the problem? I'm currently trying to play on my mobile hotspot (which I'm sure is supposed to work the same?)

Popping in here --

I do know mobile hotspots do not have the same strength per say as an actual router, and that can be the cause of failing to connect to the front server. I also believe the log in page has to be open on the same device that is running your game as well though I could be wrong.

Oh, so my hotspot is probably the cause? Since it's my only means of internet, I'm hoping that's not the case! Then I won't be able to play FH at all.

It likely is the hotspot unfortunately! Hotspots work very poorly in terms of connecting, especially to the login page.

Sometimes when my internet is down I use my phone hotspot to do other things, and unfortunately FH isn't one of them. It won't let me connect to the front server, let alone let me log into the login page. If this is all you have, what I would try doing is going to Best Buy or some place near you, and ask them if they have any routers or modems and tell them your situation. They'll know how to deal with it and give you a few options.

There are some routers that are like a 'hotspot' but with a stronger connection that work just as well as any internet service router.

Alright, thank you everyone for the help! I'm going to take your advice and see what my local tech company can do, and in the meantime stick to just browsing the forums. ^^
I really appreciate you all trying to help me fix the problem in the meantime!

I don't know how elite you are but if you can run the IP tester at https://feral-heart.com/smf/index.php?topic=59711.msg820865#msg820865 then spoof your IP browser using methods to match the one on there you'd be pretty much free to roam as you please.
Sorry i'm evil, its not on purpose..

I'd unfortunately have no idea how to do that. But thank you for the help! It seems I just won't be able to play via hotspot. Since the only way I know of changing IP is with VPN, and I'd rather not go that route.
