Captive portal logins in everyboday after first client logins In



  • captive portal logins in everyboday after first client logins In is successful. So after the desktop logins in, the laptap , the tablet , the phone & the another laptop ,all with different ip addresses logins in . I am using 2.3.1, a fresh install. I have successfully set up pfsense 2.0, but this new version is giving me this challenge. please advice. thanks



  • Hi,

    The question is ?



  • ::)



  • Sounds like all the clients are behind a NAT device, so they all appear as the same device to captive portal.

    Hi,

    The question is ?

    Every device should login seperately within my wifi router because they have different ip addresses

    Yes they are all recieving different ip addresses from the same router .what do i do?



  • You should have a discussion with your AP  :D
    It behaving like a router now. It shouldn't.
    What also often happens if the AP has a "WAN" network plug : it's been hooked up to pfSense with this port. That's very wrong. Use a normal 'switched' port (there are normally a couple of them on the AP).
    You should also switch off DHCP server in the AP.
    It should behave like a transparent device for communication.
