Connecting to public or work Wi-Fi often involves encountering a Captive Portal – that redirecting page prompting you to log in or accept terms before accessing the Internet. But did you know you can implement this feature on your own network using Net All Over devices?


Setting up a Captive Portal is particularly useful for scenarios like Airbnb rentals or shared spaces where multiple users may connect to your Wi-Fi. It adds an extra layer of security and control, ensuring that guests are directed to a specified page before gaining Internet access.


Here's how to set up a Captive Portal on your Net All Over router:

  1. Log into the Router:

  2. Open a web browser and type "192.168.8.1" into the URL bar.

  3. Enter "root" as the username and "1234554321" as the password if prompted.

  4. Enable Guest Network Wi-Fi:

  5. Navigate to the Guest Wi-Fi settings by following the instructions provided here.

  6. Set Up Captive Portal:

  7. Once logged in, access the router's advanced settings by clicking on "Advanced" in the side panel.

  8. Look for the option labeled "Captive Portal" and toggle the switch to enable it.

  9. Provide the URL you want guests to be redirected to after connecting to the network. This could be a welcome page, terms of use, or any other relevant information you want them to see.

By setting up a Captive Portal, you can ensure that anyone connecting to your Wi-Fi network is directed to the designated page before gaining full Internet access. This allows you to communicate important information or terms of use, enhancing network security and user experience.


Take control of your network security and streamline guest access with the Captive Portal feature from Net All Over!
