Wifi Access point default homepage.

Hi All

I was wondering if anybody knew of a piece of software that will display a preset webpage once the connection has been made to a netgear wireless access point.

Many Thanks

Adam

If we can get DD-WRT (http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/index) to work on your access point then this page will help with the setup of NoCatSplash:

If you are using DDWRT firmware then the NoCatSplash will work for you.

NoCat doesn't work with access points.

There are other walled-garden/captive-portal choices right above that in DD-WRT, though...DD-WRT Services - Hotspot/WalledGarden/CaptivePortal (click for larger)
And choices like HotSpot Express that can handle multiple access points.

It would help to know what model/version Netgear access point you have.

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

How about we ditch the Netgear and get a new access point then?

Can anyone suggest a model of Wireless Access Point that could do this? Preferably as cheap as chips... we just want to get someone who, when we give them a guest wireless access key, then gets diverted to a default web page before they go off exploring the Internet.

Can you post the model/version Netgear access point you have, and we can see if a alternative free firmware will work?

Thanks

NoCat only works when you're connected to the network just inside a router (outside/WAN/internet) port... not a switch interface which is what attaches an Access Point to the network. That's noted in the NoCat wiki to which you posted a link in http:#a38856079.
