Buddy,
If you have things configured on port 6-10 on ur RB 2011 how do you expect to find them on RB 750. Also RB 750 has no wireless.
Change those setting and your export import will work good.

Re: SXT as hotspot client ? Help

You can use your SXT or NSM5 to login to your hotspot with a PC or cellphone connected to i using the Dlink Router. The only factor is that you will have to autheticate it atleast once from your cell or PC or laptop, everytime you loose connectivity from your ISP.
