I have a few issues regarding the 4521, Monowall, and Captive Portal
I suspect this is a Monowall issue, but thought I would run it by this
group, to see if anyone else has had the issue.
4521, 1.26a BIOS (originally had 1.23a, upgraded, and have the same issues)
2 PCMCIA NL-2511CD Plus ext2 radios
Empty Mini PCI slot
Empty PCI slot
Sandisk 64Meg Compact Flash
2 radios without Captive Portal turned on, seem to work fine .. answering
DHCP requests, and routing out through the WAN.
1 radio WITH Captive Portal turned on, RADIUS authentication, works fine....
including when the 2nd radio is physically mounted in the unit, but not
enabled via BIOS.
With the 2nd radio activated in BIOS, and Captive Portal turned on on
Radio1, the router reboots when a radio client attempts to authenticate.
Sometimes the reboot is before the Radius authentication, sometimes after.
A related issue for Monowall 1.1, is it appears to only allow Captive portal
on one interface at a time. .. I've not seen where it can be implemented on
2 radios simultaneously.
When Captive Portal is implemented on the 2nd radio .... it blocks outside
access, but doesn't bring up the Radius screen .. only get a ' Page not
I'm off to look for Monowall hits ....
Thanks for your time.
