2.9 HotSpot has different authentication methods, one of them is mac-address authentication.

One thing, you should reconfigure HotSpot in 2.9, because 2.8 is incompatible with it.

add a mangle rule to match packets based on the src mac-address and setup a flow mark called hs-auth, allow access to hs-auth and deny other traffic from going anywhere but to your hotspot login page.

There may also be a setting in the Hotspot feature within routeros to authenticate users by MAC address. I'm sure there's somthing in the manual on mikrotik.com reguarding authentication methods for hotspots....

To add to what wildbill said, add the user(s) MAC address in the DHCP lease table so they always get the same IP address and so your firewall rules based on a certain IP will bypass the hotspot for the right user(s) if you would prefer to base rules on IP addresses instead of MACs in the firewall. Either way would work though.

I beleive on MT 2.8 you can use the users MAC as username and password that would not prompt them for login screen.

On MT 2.9 you can use IP Binding which works beautiful so far for me.
