Portal "You are connected" but no internet
I have a portal set up with everything left at default except for the redirect link to google and the hard timeout set to 1440 minutes. Oh, and no authentication is set up just press login and your in. Everything seemed to work well at first, but later clients reported that they have to internet.
Second time connects get a portal prompt that says "You are connected" but no internet access. The only way to get internet is to disconnect them from the portal and have them log in again.
If no one else is getting this issue I think I may be cursed... No joke I have never gotten a captive portal that just works. But that may be a GOOD thing, because it is the reason that I switched from UniFi to pfSense.
Anyway, I am happy with pfSense but may give up entirely on captive portals.

@free4 Thank you so much! I haven't done much testing before posting but it does seems that changing the settings causes it. Will not apply the fix as I won't need to change the settings too often.
Hi xhivo97 same problem here!
