why sometimes, clients PC cannot go to login page or any others website..
but they can get ip address..
i need to remove their ip/mac address from IP>ARP and DHCP server there, then they just can load the hotspot login page..
Anyone have idea about this?

I'm not quite sure, but I think this has something to do with the lease time of the ip/mac bindings that the dhcp server hands out. I think the default is 3 days, try lowering the value.

If you disable the hotspot, can the clients access the internet?

Is dns set up correctly? Do you have "allow-remote-requests=yes"?

I am not sure i disable hotspot the clients can access internet or not. But if i remove from DHCP and ARP there users can online.
If i remove at DHCP but NOT ARP there, the users still cannot online. Only i remove at 2 sites.
