Most likely, you still have a networking issue unrelated to wifidog.  If you 
go to <public IP>:8080 (and whatever path you configured your authserver to 
be on) with a web browser, from the same network as the gateway, do you see 
the auth server root page?  If not, your gateway won't be able to use it
