 Subject:  setting up hotspot
 Date:  Mon, 4 Aug 2008 22:29:56 +0200
I have been struggling with this for over a week now.
Also i must say I am no network expert.
Starting from this article I tried to setup a captive portal.
I did as described but I couldn't get it to work.
In this article I also don't understand how one could get an ipaddress from the WAN side but anyway.
This is what I tried (and want to achieve)
internet----modem (sip spoof) ---- WAN snb6500 router LAN ------WAN m0n0wall
I have read the mailing list before and I have seen suggestions of connecting m0n0wall directly to
the modem.
I don't want this. I don't want to change existing infra structure. I only want to add monowall and
an AP
I tried all kind of stuff
Swapping WAN and LAN, different subnets for LAN connected to AP. Nothing seems to work
When I look at the interface part of monowall I see no IP address assigned on one side . I thought
my snb6500 router would distribute an IP to the monowall but it doesn't ?? (yes dhcp is on in
router) I do get an address from mono when connecting to the AP (called hotspot)
What am I missing. Is it that hard to set up a hotspot ??
Or am I really doing stupid things here ?
