    Greetings fellow Merlin's,

    Forgive me if this has been asked -- but is there a way to set up a guest wifi so that a website automatically opens when a client connects through the router's guest network? Ideally this could be on all devices -- laptops, phones, tablets, etc. At some point, we may need a disclaimer click-through for security purposes, for now we'd like to splash up a company page hosted on the www.

    I have two "downgraded" T-Mobile RT-AC68u's on CFE 1.0.2.0 and am using John's latest fork.

    Thanks!

    I think Shibby's Tomato build might have a captive portal - it won't work however if you have one of the newest RT-AC68U hardware revisions such as C1.

    Similar topic: There used to be the option to place a user page in the www/user/ directory.
    If logged into the WebUI, it would then be accessible via <router IP>/user/
    But this no longer appears to work. Has this been deprecated in a recent change?

    No idea, I never looked at that area of the code / that feature. Asus been doing a lot of changes to the httpd daemon this past year.
