With a Cell Phone using PdaNet+s WiFi Hotspot is there any way to set up a Router as a WiFi Repeater for that Hotspot and also set up the Router to use an Automatic Proxy for clients to this port ttp://192.168.49.1:8000"?

Windows devices can connect independently, using the PdaNet+ Desktopo as can Android. Apple also, but must use the above Automatic Proxy. Smart TV's, Satellite TV controllers and Chromecast can connect, but can't see an internet connection. Thus the need for a Broadband Router to be set up as above.

Setup your router to disable DHCP and WiFi. Then set the cellphone hotspot to use the same WiFi name as your router's. Try and see.

Have done that several times. Doesn't work. Finally fatally bricked an old dd-wrt router.

For this setup to work you connect your hotspot to the computer and the software allows you to use the computer as a router. Then you can connect the router via Ethernet to the computer and use the router as an access point.

Get a Cradlepoint router. It supports connecting to a wireless network as a WAN connection.
