Hi. I have a spare BT wifi router, does anyone have experiance making a "Captive Portal" or made a WiFi landing page? When Im at venues that don't have wifi it would be good to setup a small network people could connect to. Any ideas?
Basically when Im DJing and the venue doesn't have wifi, I want people to be able to connect to my landing page. Then I can make links to things like the karaoke song list, share photo's etc. I will take my router with me and give it a hostname that people can connect to. The problem I have with the BT Hub is that when you connect to it's local default IP it just takes you to the settings page, I don't know how to redirect it to a html page or different IP address. My phone has wifi, and I can connect. But the thing I want to be able to do is for people to see my network when there's no internet (no phone signal, just wifi to my router).
Luke Geronimo Michael Savage The "Captive Portal" settings will normally be under WiFi in the router settings, if it is available. On most home routers they are also fairly self explanatory, or will have instructions online, but you just create your landing screen, add your authentication settings, then configure what access is available to authenticated connections.
If your home server has no internet access, that is a different issue. Have you checked DNS? Tracert?
Jamie Chapman The device will need to support it. Put lede on there and ditch the BT firmware

Spend under two hundred dollars and get a Ubiquiti AP, and a cloud key. The controller software is free and you easily can make a captive portal.
