Gateway is not healthy

Hi to everybody
I'm tryng to connect my wired lan (192.168.1.1-255) to internet through my Mobile HotSpot (192.168.43.1) of my Galaxy Note8 phone.
I'm using a TPLINK wa801nd with static ip 192.168.1.254 to connected in client mode to the wifi ssid of HotSpot.
I used same address 192.168.1.254 as gateway as I cannot use mobile Hotspot (.43.1) being on different network
I got from Fing Desktop the error GATEWAY IS NOT HEALTHY, and NO CONNECTED TO INTERNET, DNS RESOLUTION IS NOT WORKING.
Please help me, it's 2 days working I tried  all possible type of connections.

    Try changing the 192.168.1.254 to 192.168.1.253, sometimes 254 is used internally by a router.

    Does your network function correctly but Fing Desktop is just complaining?

    No Rooted thank You but it doesn't work. I already tried some different IPs but it's not that the problem. I'm able to get internet doing a direct connection using wifi on mypc directly to Mobile phone Hotspot (192.168.43.1).
    But I would like to connect all my lan (192.168.1.1/255) to internet through same hotspot and I'm not sure which is best way.
    I tried bridge configuration (wired .1.1/255 and wifi .43.1) Internet is working but pinging other lan devices reports error.
    I tried use an Access Point to connect to Mobile Hotspot in client mode, no way and repeater mode no way.
    Seeems that the only way is to set all statics ips on the same addresses (.43.2/255) as the Hotspot (.43.1).
    Does anybody have any other better solution so to not change static Ip addresses of my wired lan ?

    If you use wireless bridge it should work as long as you PC is connected to the tp-link router by LAN cable.

    Follow this page, in the diagram LAN 1 is your your mobile hotspot.

    Hi rooted
    I tried all modes possible.  The one you suggested me should work but unfortuanately not.
    I set wa801n as Bridge with AP mode, connected to mobile Hotspot, created a second WiFi ap using same name to repeat the original wifi
    I can succesfully ping the HotSpot/gateway (192.168.43.1 and also my PC .43.2) from wa801n but .... NOT FROM MY PC 
    It seems that the wa801n doesn't route lan/wlan requests to the gateway.
    Everything works fine if I connect directly my PC to the Hotspot
