The AP is an AireBeam public access node. Standard login is a username and then password. However, when i try to connect with the Nanostation to boost signal there is no username input in the station mode for wireless connecting. only password. To be clear what i am trying to do is connect to the AP which from where i am is a weak signal with my Nanostation. My nano station is connected to a router with its own SSID. I then connect to my router with a laptop, phone etc. I have a feeling that i should not be using station mode ?

I have attached two screen captures, the first is the AP log in and the second is my nanostation setting. Nano station setting does not include a place for user name just password.

Hello, I saw the last post on your case because I have the same problem. Does your problem is resolved because I’m not sure I understand what to do.

Hello, a long response......
At the beginning, I just did my installation (Nanostation M2 and AirGateway LR) in my RV and I connected it to my home network and work fine. My network is a WPA/WPA2-PSK security set up. I saw you selected "station" for wireless mode, in my case I use Router. I did my configuration base on the following video
But yesterday I had a nightmare, what to do when the site provide a user and a password to connect to the network (like this most of the time) and of course there is no place specify a user like you found.
So I seach on that and found your post and the responses that I wasnt sure to understand and you confirmed, it still not working for you.
I found the site from the guy who did the video and he wrote this ...
"Dealing with Captive Portal or “Agree” Pages: Some parks require you to “agree” or login with a user name and password before you have access. So once you connect to the park with the NanoStation, while on your Wi-Fi network, the first time you open your web browser the “captive portal” page will come up asking you to agree or log in. Once you do, the portal will note the MAC address of the NanoStation and then allow access to anything on your local Wi-Fi network." (Text and more info).
Ta dam, It look too good.
So, if you or other one can confirm this . It will be perfect. If not, my installation will be useless......
I don't know when will my next escapade and of course I don't want to be stuck with this because till now I spent a lot of time on it.

In most situations with a Captive portal, the following setup would work:
Put the nanostation M2 in station + router mode and setup NAT on the nanostation to create your own internal network range.
This should be a range not commonly used by the locations that you try to connect to. (172.31.100.1/24 would do nicely i think)
Setup your internal router just as a wifi bride.
Then connect the nanostation to the location's wifi.
With your mobile device try to surf to a non https website
The catch page of the location will pop up.
Fill in your login details.
The gateway router will then bind your nanostation MAC to the login details and allow you to surf.
Depending on the settings of the hotspot, you might need to login on the Catch page when the "inactivity" counter runs out.
Setup ntp on your routers or use dydns etc, this might help with the inactivity counter.
Some hotspots only check on http traffic, but some will see ntp traffic and keep the inactivity counter active.

can you confirm my undanstanding. In my nanostation I set the wireless mode to station and the network mode to router. But on my AirGeteway, the network mode is SOHO router and wireless mode is access point. Those settings on AirGateway are the default not change as the site I point out did.
What do you mean about setup your internal router just as a wifi bridge ?
About the login process , it's like I understand refered to the web site I point out in earlier post.
About inactivity counter runs out, not sure to setup, you talked about ntp an dydns but not found that. Of course it would better to avoid to enter user and password every inactivity runs out.
