Can dd-wrt show a custom start page when a user connects to the wireless?

Is it possible to display a custom start page that doesn't require any log on or sign up when a user connects to a wireless network created by dd-wrt firmware?

Only if it goes through the WAN port...  it's called NoCatSplash... all they have to do is click the Proceed button; no authentication is possible with that, actually.  Enable SSH (Secure Shell on the Services/Services tab), then use WinSCP to connect to the router's LAN IP and you can overwrite the stock splash.html in the /www folder even without using JFFS2 space. NoCatSplash is on the Services/Hotspot tab in Mega, Std and Mini. NoCatSplash does NOT work without going from LAN/WLAN through the WAN port, however... and I don't think there's room for it in the Micro versions.

It's called NoCat from an Einstein quote, btw, which you can see on nocat.net's website.

I just found that on the dd-wrt forum but it says there that it does not work on ver 2.4 final.  

I'm not totally following you about going from Lan/wlan through the wan port though.  is this different from the standard setup of a wireless router.  Also lf this was working it looks like from the options that the splash page would reside on a web server as a regular web page.  Is this the case?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Wait, perhaps I get it. You mean that it will only work with a dd-wrt router that is using its wan port to connect to say a comcast modem, but it won't work on any other dd-wrt routers that are not using their wan ports, the ones that are just operating as access points.

Do you have a link to that?

Yes, exactly...  only when the connection goes through the WAN port.

When an already-NAT'd internet connection is hooked to a LAN port (or the 'Assign WAN to switch' box on Setup/Basic Setup is checked) and the DD-WRT device is used as an access point, NoCatSplash (as implemented by DD-WRT) certainly will not function.
