Re: How to create a free hotspot?

As an alternative, you could use the MAC address and send it to a RADIUS server, which would register this as a new account and put it in the RADIUS database. But it sounds like your setup already works. I came with another alternative. In user profiles I put the following script in the "script" me...

Re: How to create a free hotspot?

Since this information about MAC addresses is stored in RAM, not database, it will clear after reboot.
Try to not reboot the router :)

How to increase the address pool for a hotspot created on VLAN?

Currently I created a hotspot on VLAN10. The address pool for this is 192.168.10.2-192.168.10.254. How can I increase/add more address pool to this hotspot?

If you connect RB directly to ISP instead of Cisco, then of course it won't work without some config changes. Did you perhaps miss what I was trying to tell you?

Re: What Private Network IP Address should I asighn to the Internal LAN?

The most likely problem with this setup is missing route to 192.168.0.1/24 on Cisco router. You must tell it that it's behing 192.168.1.114, otherwise it has no idea where to find it and will try to reach it using default route, i.e. send packets to ISP and that's not where your 192.168.0.1/24 is. ...

What is your reason for not using a default setup, i.e. port 1 connected towards internet and using the default
LAN address range of 192.168.88.1/24 ?


Purpose is to learn how to customize it.

It depends on what you're trying to do. If you add three wlan cards to RB433AH, you'll have three new wireless interfaces. And then you can use them as three separate APs. You can also add virtual APs to each physical interface, but those will share frequency and bandwidth of base interface. You ca...
