Hotspot logic: MAC login vs ip binding

Sun Nov 25, 2018 4:16 pm

Hypothetical case: I have 10 devices which need to access the internet without having to authenticate to the hotspot.

Should I set these 10 devices to login as MAC-based user or use ip-binding (bypass).

If the device does not touch port 80 (http), then MAC login will not work. If opening a web browser for the device to connect is not an issue, then it is up to preference.

I see. Thank you.
