captive portal over wireless client access point



  • hi guys i created pfsense captive portal and its works to switch to any access point but wireless client to ap clients getting internet without voucher. i want point to another wireless points clients also go into captive portal. Thanks



  • Well ....
    Can't figure out what your setup is. Neither what the actual question is.
    I drawing with IP addresses etc ?

    Clients, connected to an AP behind a Captive portal that pass through without authentication : this means the AP's are used as routers, not in AP mode (only). So : use your AP as an AP, not as a router.



  • Some AP's are not transparent bridges and the PFSense box could be seeing all wireless clients as one MAC address. First person to authenticate on the wireless authenticates all the users that connect after them.



  • @Gertjan i am using as a ap and clients are getting ip from dhcp server of pfsense box. but ap connected to pfsense wirelessly. only 1st user go to captive portal.

    yes but all device getting ip from dhcp server of pfsense. should i try others wireless app. Thank you



  • The AP not being a transparent bridge is based on experiences I have had in the past with wireless gear. Its been a long time since I had an issue like that so beyond what I have stated I don't have much else, check the arp table? Can the DHCP server assign more then 1 IP per MAC? I know that when this was happening for me, multiple devices could get on the internet so the DHCP server must have been assigning multiple IPs to MAC addresses.



  • thanks
