We have set up numerous hotspots now that all appear to be working, but we are having troubles with one network that is very complex. Here is a layout of what we have running:
(1) Mikrotik w/ Hotspot, 1 WAN connection, 1 LAN connection, both Ethernet, and 1 remote PPP connection to our data center for tunnelling of additional IPs to network
(1) RB532 w/ bridging to LAN connection on Ethernet port, one 5.8ghz Atheros card w/ dynamic WDS running in AP bridge mode, and one 2.4ghz Atheros card w/out WDS running in AP bridge mode for customers
(8) RB532 w/ WDS-enabled Atheros 5.8 in wds station mode and Atheros 2.4 w/out WDS running in AP bridge mode for customers
This is to cover a limited area with hotspot access, however, HotSpot login is a 100% requirement. We have set everything up correctly, to the best of our knowledge, but where we have problems is that the HotSpot will just stop working altogether. We will suddenly have no hotspot page or data to customers that were HS authenticated. We are running 2.9 currently, and have contemplated upgrading, however, we have had the same problems since the 2.9rc7 release and have only now had a chance to start working on this.
Please let us know what needs to be done to get this resolved, and if more information is needed, please let us know.
