After i entered the first PfSense voucher code, every connection get access to internet without using voucher. which is wrong..Anyone with help
After i entered the first PFSense voucher code, every connection get access to internet without using voucher. which is wrong..
I have 3 wifi repeaters that are in between the PFSense and them. The first router that is directly plugged into PFSense is Huawei B162-25d , then the second routher is Ultra-link N300 that is directly plugged into Huawei[1st router] and the last one is also Ultra-link N300 plugged as a repeater taking internet directly from the second one.
The issues is that when a single voucher is entered it opens for all connection to have access to the internet without having to use their voucher...where they other connections a re supposed to use their voucher to access the internet... but is no the case in my topology..
Anyone with help?
You have to disable nat on your wireless routers
Thanks for your response.
According to UltraLink N300 there is no NAT in the firmware... and i have tried to research if there is any equivalent NAT used in this device firmware but i am not winning...![alt text](image url)
those are repeaters that might or might not have nat
the huawei b162-25d is certainly a router with nat. you need to disable the routing part & the nat part and run it in bridge mode
Wireless repeaters often (always?) use some blackmagic to make all clients look like they are coming from the same MAC address. So the captive portal will only see one MAC, one client.
Don't use those devices in repeater/extender mode.
Thanks a lot....but the problem is not going away on this routers......
I also tried using Ubiquity Nano Station M2... but it does not send me to captive portal and it reports that there is no internet....
i will appreciate your more.
If you are not using any wireless extenders/repeaters first run a packet capture on the incoming interface and make sure you see unique MAC addresses from all clients.

Try disconnecting users manually and retesting to confirm it. There is a patch on that thread for the issue.
