View Full Version : Tomato HotSpot without RADIUS server

03-09-2009, 04:49 PM
Hi all,

So I've got a WDS running through Tomato quite nicely. I've been approached by a small housing development to offer broadband to tenants using such a WDS, however there would need to be some kind of authentication (The network would be open & protected instead by a captive portal).

Having looked at a few things like Sputnik / WiFi dog, are there any other there that are drop-in solutions that *dont* require me to have a separate RADIUS server lying around? Preferably something also that I can just install alongside Tomato, without having to nix the firmware, I'm really quite fond of its QoS :banana

Any thoughts / comments appreciated

Something like Chillispot perhaps?

It works with DD-WRT, unsure about Tomato though.

Both pfsense and m0n0wall will do captive portal without needing radius. I'd recommend you set up a radius server though - freeradius really isn't that hard to configure!
