AP that passes MAC adresses?



  • So I got my captive portal working, however when I have the MAC Passthrough active it just allows through due to the APs mac address.

    So I either need to figure out how to make this AP allow their macs through or buy new APs. They are Business grade APs Engenuis EOA3630s, and I have 3 of them, they were a pretty penny when we got them long ago, so getting them to work would be prefered.

    Does anyone have any idea how to make these APs pass-through mac?


  • LAYER 8 Netgate

    Any AP does.

    If that one is not it is either in a router mode, not an AP mode, or is for some reason proxying ARP or something of that nature.

    In either case you are probably going to get a faster reply asking on a forum specific to that product.



  • Your AP has its DHCP server shut down, router-mode is shut down, etc ?

    Yes, it is in AP mode. It offers quite a few modes.

    AP Mode
    AP router
    Client Router
    WDS Bridge
    WDS Router

    and I think a few others, at any rate its in AP mode.

    Also, the Mac addresses are shown in PFsense DHCP lease lists, however when the captive portal is on with the Mac pass through, it lets every device passthrough with the first logged in user.
