Operating 6600M Portable w/Writelog

I would like to use my 6600M away from home where I have my Internet access.  I tried rigging it up at home as a  test this way.

I have a WiFi hotspot that I am going to use as the router, so that the PC will be able to get to the Internet.  

I will be connecting the radio to the WiFi hotspot using an Ethernet to WiFi adapter.

When I do this and I have the radio on the same network address range as the PC CAT cannot find the radio, even though I can ping the radio from the PC. 

What I was hoping for is that the software had a way of discovering the radio on a local network.  I thought that was how it was initially discovered.

I don't care about the radio being able to get to the Internet since the radio is right there with me, so I should not have to worry about the ports thru the NAT in the router.

What am I missing?  

Thanks es 73, John  K0TG

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
