A linux server, basically. As I understand these things, you set up your DHCP server to kick people to a private subnet when they first request an IP, and route all traffic to your particular login webpage. Then when they successfully login/whatever, you put their MAC address in the list that gets a useful IP and renew their IP.
Can someone help me set my WRT54G to redirect any incoming traffic to a specific website. I’m thinking of doing a scouting page, and I want to make it as easy as possible. I have DD-WRT installed on my router. My best guess was to use the HTTP Redirect under the Hotspot tab, but whenever I do this, I cannot connect to the router’s setup page again. I am also using the Apache webserver client on my laptop and using port 85.
Thanks for keeping the unnecessary threads down. That’s pretty much what I’m asking to do, just not that specifically. But if somebody could instruct us on how to do that, it’d be very much appreciated.
By the way, Eric, I went ahead and bought that Linksys router. I usually don’t have good times with Linksys, but everybody says this is a good one. I’ll let you know when I get it in the mail.
Never had a problem with dropping connections even in a college dorm environment where there are 6-7 networks at any one time (Just change the transmitting channel from default 6)
