Hi all! I searched but could not find a post on this. I am looking for a router (small travel preferred) to use in hotspot mode (sharing a wifi connection). The host network that I want to access doesn't have a PW, but does use a captive portal login page. I want to connect an Internet radio to this network. My radio and all the other ones, support a SSID/PW, but don't have a browser to accept the T&Cs on a login page. So I thought I'd get a router to get behind the host network, and use it to set up a shared network the radio can connect to with just a SSID/PW. I've looked at a few travel routers by Netgear, TP-Link and others, but they don't seem to support captive portal logins. Some will host a captive portal, but of course that's not what I need. Most I've come across will only access the donor network with an SSID, but you can't get the browser to pull up the captive login page. Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to provide detail. Does anyone know of a router that will support this? I don't think it's rare, since most hotel WiFi seem to use login pages, and people want to share hotel WiFi to a laptop, tablet, Fire stick. etc. Thanks in advance!

You can almost always do this with any router that supports MAC spoofing (which should be any modern router). Some routers can also support it more directly by opening a browser when connecting through the router (you may need to disable DNS Rebind Protection and/or DNS TLS). A well-known brand for such support in travel routers is GL.iNET. I believe the GL-AR750S-Ext and GL-B1300 are their most advanced dual band models.

I can't speak for the GL.iNET routers but with the HooToo you will use the vpn on your client device and connect via the HooToo to the wifi in the hotel. The HooToo does not provide any sort of vpn capabilities. And just to be clear, the main benefit of the HooToo is to allow more than one device to connect to a wifi host that only allows one device to be connected. The HooToo becomes that "one" device and then allows you to connect multiple devices to the HooToo for access to the hotel wifi.

WiFi Captive Portals Making It Difficult To Connect Your Travel Router?

WiFi Captive Portals Making It Difficult To Connect Your Travel Router?

I’m travelling a lot more these days so spending time in hotels is now for winding down and sleeping to minimise the effects of jet lag. Something I find doesn’t actually get any easier the more you travel. I now take my Chromecast with me. It’s just one of those things that just works. No fuss or hassle. So I don’t need to spend time trying to troubleshoot problems.

Hotels tend to use captive portals for signing in to their wifi via the web browser. The Chromecast doesn’t have a web browser so can’t connect. The solution would be to create my own private wifi network that it can connect to.

So basically a router. With a wifi hotspot.

What I need from a travel router

There are a lot of travel routers available so it was important to narrow that down by creating a list of what I needed:

  • Small and lightweight;
  • Run off USB power (so no lugging around power packs and cables);
  • Simple, so less to manage and go wrong;
  • No battery (as I want to pack it in checked baggage);
  • Needs to work with ‘hotel’ wifi;
  • OpenVPN support as a client;

The last one wasn’t a deal breaker as I use IPVanish on all of my devices but it’s a nice to have.

After a bit of research I settled on the GL.iNet range of products. They tick all of the boxes and have good reviews. The base model, Mango has everything I needed but for a little more money the Shadow (AR-300M) has the better Qualcomm CPU. So that’s what I settled for.

When it arrived, the first thing I did was a factory reset it (suggested by a helpful Amazon review). I connected it to my home wifi, connected devices to it and it just worked. Hotel wifi is another beast entirely.

The first hotel

So here I am in a Marriot owned hotel in Kansas City, Missouri and it was time to try out creating my first private wifi hotspot. Most hotel wifi uses a captive portal sign in page to register the device. This is usually done using the MAC address of the device, to permit access. As the travel router does nto have a browser to sign in we need to give it the MAC address of a device that does.

Easy. Or so I thought.

The Marriot Hotel I was staying at provided an ethernet cable for internet, as well as wifi. So I used that. Gave it the MAC address of my laptop. But couldn’t connect to the internet. Any device I connected to the travel router private hotspot couldn’t get internet access either. I couldn’t even ping the hotel wifi gateway!

I then tried to connect the travel router to the hotel wifi. Exactly the same issues - couldn’t connect to the internet and couldn’t even ping the gateway!

After several hours of troubleshooting I found a forum post outlining a workaround. It wasn’t the travel routers fault apparently. It was The Marriot hotels’ weird and wonderful way of doing things that the travel router needed a helping hand with.

So I tried to implement the workaround. But the instructions were not clear and eventually I had to throw in the towel and give up. The forum post mentioned The Marriot were upgrading the wifi service across their hotels. Some have the new system and some don’t. I concluded that this hotel had a new, more restrictive system that the travel router could not work with.

I then went to bed.

… a short time later

When I cannot overcome a problem I can find difficult to let go. That’s a strength and a weakness. Tenacity is a good thing. But so is knowing when to give up. Couple that with a lack of sleep and jet lag and I was grumpy and determined.

So, I spent another hour troubleshooting. Then I went for breakfast.

When I came back I decided I would give it one last go. And, you’ll be finally glad to hear after reading up to this point, I got it working!

Here’s how I did it.

Some notes before we start

Before I start there are a couple of points to make.

You may be able to skip some steps below. This worked for me as is. It may not work for you;

The GL.iNet AR300M is a quirky little device with it’s own idiosyncrasies. It will frustrate you. Stay calm or you’re not going to get this to work;

Other hotels will use the same system as The Marriot. So these steps may work with others;

Reboot your travel router before you start. It’s always a good idea to start from a clean state. To do this hold the Reset button until the middle LED starts flashing faster (will happen after 3 seconds). Note that holding it for 10 seconds will restore factory settings . So be careful!

I recommend disconnecting any other devices you have connected to your travel router. Only connect the device you will be using for these steps;

If you have OpenVPN client setup I have noticed that while going through these steps it tries to connect, fails and blocks all network traffic. So it looks like you are not connected to the hotel wifi and these steps don’t work. My advice is to check OpenVPN is not trying to connect before you start and if you experience connection issues;

I had all of the Custom DNS Server settings disabled. To do this in the GL.iNet console, click the More Settings menu and then Custom DNS Server and make sure all options are turned off;

GL.iNet AR300M Custom DNS Server Settings

The previous night I had changed a lot of settings while troubleshooting. So I could start with a clean slate I did a factory reset. You are unlikely to have to do this. If you do be aware you will have to reconfigure everything . I was lucky that this was the first time I’d used it so reconfiguration took me about 2 minutes. To do a factory reset:

  • On the main menu click More Settings menu and then click Revert Firmware ;
  • Click Revert Now ;

And finally.

It’s important that you use the same device throughout all of these steps. And that the device you use hasn’t been registered on the hotel wifi. I think the wifi captive portal page is triggered by using a device that hasn’t been signed in before. I will try and confirm this next time I’m at a hotel.

Sign in to the hotel wifi captive portal through your travel router

Let’s get on with connecting to The Marriot wifi!

Connect to the GL.iNet admin panel. I had to connect to http://192.168.8.1 and enter the admin password;

From the main menu click More Settings and then MAC Clone ;

GL.iNet AR300M Mac Clone Menu

  • On the MAC Clone page, select the MAC address that is shown as (clone) in the dropdown list. Click Apply ;

GL.iNet AR300M Clone Your Device MAC Address

  • Click Internet on the main menu. Then, in the Repeater box, click Scan ;

GL.iNet AR300M Scan For Hotel WiFi

  • When the scan is complete select the hotel wifi you want to connect from the dropdown menu (mine was TOWNEPLACE_GUEST ). Click Join ;

GL.iNet AR300M Join The Hotel WiFi

  • Click Internet on the main menu. Once you see the hotel wifi name (mine was TOWNEPLACE_GUEST ) appear with an IP address, make a note of the Gateway IP address. We will need it later;

GL.iNet AR300M Hotel WiFi Gateway IP Address

Completing the last step caused a popup with You must login ... to appear (I’m using Firefox so you may see something different). Click the Login button and you will see the wifi sign in page appear. The page will fail to load, but that’s okay. If that page does not appear, try browsing to cnn.com or neverssl.com . There may be others that work but those worked for me in tests;

When the sign in page fails to load look at the browser address bar. It will show something similar to https://mcita.cust.blueprintrf.com:8001 . We are need to note part of this. The bit after https:// and before the :8081 . Using the previous example it would be mcita.cust.blueprintrf.com . Make a note of it;

Hotel WiFi Failed Sign In Page

  • Go back to the GL.iNet admin console and click More Settings and then Advanced . When prompted, login using the same password you use to login to the GL.iNet admin console;

GL.iNet Advanced Menu

  • From the top menu click Network and then Hostnames . Then click the Add button. In the first box, under Hostname , enter the name we made a note of in step 8 above (our example was mcita.cust.blueprintrf.com ). In the second box, under IP address , select from the dropdown the IP address that we noted for the Gateway in step 6 above. If you don’t see this IP address in the list make sure something else in the list is not using it. If it is, remove that entry by clicking Delete (I would also recommend you reboot the router by clicking System and then Reboot ). Click Save & Apply ;

GL.iNet Hostnames Menu

Refresh the hotel wifi sign in page that failed at step 7. One of two things will happen here:

The page will either load and you can then sign in to the wifi, or

It will fail to load again, in which case wait 30 seconds and try again. If it fails to load on the second or third attempt my suggestion would be to reboot the travel router and then go back through all of these steps again. If this still doesn’t work then there are lots of things you can try but there are too many options to give them here.

Hotel WiFi Sign In Page

I currently have 5 devices connected to the travel router:

  • Two Windows laptops;
  • 1 Android tablet;
  • 1 Android watch;
  • 1 Android phone

Connecting to wifi through captive portals with your travel router makes things more difficult, but not impossible. You can now create your own private wifi hotspot while you’re travelling without jumping through hoops. Hopefully this saves you the pain I went through.

Hotel captive portal strikes again

So I have had the opportunity to try my new MT3000 during a trip to Spain using an android tablet to connect (open network but with credentials needed in captive portal to authenticate) . I have tried every single trick in the book (and I do mean every single thing that I have read about this problem on these fora over the years I have been hanging on here) to get the hotel’s captive portal to show up on my tablet to no avail. Connecting my tablet directly to the hotel’s WiFi, passing the captive portal and then cloning the tablet’s MAC to the MT3000 worked quite well but that was the only way.

Now the important question that I can find no answer to: I managed to get a cheap TL-WR802N travel router to try and using this in WISP mode, this small thing connected to the hotel’s WiFi immediately and got me to the captive portal straight away. Why was the TP-Link able to achieve what the GL.iNet couldn’t no matter what I have tried? What is the difference here especially with the GL.iNet being supposedly much more advanced and freatures-rich? Where is the weak link or the problem with the handling of captive portals on these routers that have caused so much grief to fellow travelers?

What’s the IP of the Beryl AX (192.168.8.1)? What’s the IP of the TPlink( 192.168.0.1) The subnet routing might not be allowed or used by another service at the hotel.

Good shout but trying the Beryl IP on 192.168.0.1 still makes no difference in getting the captive portal to come up after connecting to the hotel’s WiFi. Also if the subnet routing is not allowed or occupied then wouldn’t you expect MAC cloning workaround to also not work?

So what size hotel maybe they have a small IP window for allocation. Starts 192.168.1.10 to 192.168.1.80 (simple way of limiting connections) or something could also maybe forcing DNS request. TP-link running some kind of Tomato OS? DNSmasque issue? Maybe the wifi encryption? or Bandwidth? look at the settings of the TP-Link see whats different?

Lot of options Any thing in the logs?

No, it is a massive hotel. Settings on both routers are exactly the same and TP-Link running original stock firmware. No difference with various DNS settings (automatic, manual, encrypted, forced…etc.) on the GL.iNet and the open WiFi connects with no problems at all and router gets IP but it cannot get the captive portal no matter what I have tried even when trying to point the browser to gateway IP of 172.10.0.1. No pointers on logs either.

Well well well, guess what! After pulling my hair off, it finally worked merely by connecting my tablet to the 2.4Ghz SSID of the GL.iNet and not the 5Ghz one. Now why this should make any difference is beyond me…

Weird Little confused on what you did exactly? You connected you tablet to hotel wifi 2.4Ghz entered info for captive portal, got a connection, then cloned MAC address to GL.iNet router, then connected to the router 2.4Ghz?

The TP-Link TL-WR802 could access 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz?

Legacy stuff maybe easy of use.

Casually inqure at the front desk. The answer might actually be first sign-in needs to be done on 2.4Ghz then once added can access 5Ghz because of the range difference. I mean who runs up and down hotel hallways chasing invisible creatures. Pokemon. Literally been told by someone when wifi mapping to optimize for this. But I digress the point is how the AP are set up 5Ghz prioritization.

The TP-link TL-WR802N travel router only does 2.4Ghz Right?

MAC cloning worked as expected regardless of the SSID band used. I then reverted to routers’s default MAC to try and get it to work without MAC cloning.

Hotel appears to only broadcast at 2.4Ghz (probably for better reach rather than speed) and so both my routers were only connecting to wireless 2.4Ghz on the WAN side. The problem is if my tablet was connected to the MT3000’s 5Ghz on the LAN side then I couldn’t not get the captive portal to show up and then I discovered that it would only work if the LAN connection was also established on the 2.4Ghz. As for the TL-WR802N however, that wasn’t an issue as it is a single band router anyway. Why would the band choice on the LAN side by itself make any difference to the router’s ability to pass through the captive portal page with all the other settings being exactly the same?

Maybe it gets bottle necked at the 2.4Ghz connection because the tablet on the 5Ghz connection is sending stuff way to fast and expecting to soon. Maybe 5Ghz timeout needs to be tweaked only thing I can think of.

As far as I know, TP-link repeater works in bridge mode, while glinet works in routing mode. The reason why we choose to work in routing mode is to better cooperate with VPN.

  1. Solution TL-WR902AC Won't Connect to Hotel Wi-Fi

    2. If the authentication login page doesn't show up when connecting the TL-WR902AC/TL-WR802N to the open portal Wi-Fi network, connect a laptop that can work with the portal Wi-Fi directly to the travel router's Wi-Fi network, then log in to the web UI of the router, go to Network > MAC Clone page to clone the laptop's MAC address to the router ...

  2. How do I set up Captive Portal on TL-WA1201?

    Captive Portal allows you to design a portal page for network access verification. Customers are directed to view an advertisement or accept set terms before being granted internet access. In this way, it offers unique marketing opportunities for small businesses to improve brand awareness and deliver marketing messages.

  3. Travel router that can access captive portal

    So I thought I'd get a router to get behind the host network, and use it to set up a shared network the radio can connect to with just a SSID/PW. I've looked at a few travel routers by Netgear, TP-Link and others, but they don't seem to support captive portal logins. Some will host a captive portal, but of course that's not what I need.

  4. Using Travel Router on a Hotel Network which requires Captive Portal

    1. #1. Start a New Thread. Hi all: Does anyone know if a TP-Link AC750 Dual Band Wi-Fi Travel Router is able to connect to a hotel wi-fi that uses a captive portal (web logon page) to access their network. Or any other travel routers which can do this?

  5. WiFi Captive Portals Making It Difficult To Connect Your Travel Router

    On the MAC Clone page, select the MAC address that is shown as (clone) in the dropdown list. Click Apply; Click Internet on the main menu. Then, in the Repeater box, click Scan; When the scan is complete select the hotel wifi you want to connect from the dropdown menu (mine was TOWNEPLACE_GUEST ). Click Join;

  6. How do you make a captive portal for Wi-Fi?

    Click Wireless > Settings. Click the pencil symbol to the right of the SSID that you want to edit. Click Enable Captive Portal . If you want to redirect users to a website after they view the captive portal, click the Redirect URL slider and enter a redirect URL in the Redirect URL field. I tried this method but do not find any solution.

  7. TL-WR902AC V3 Connecting to Hotel Wi-Fi with Captive Portal

    During Quick Setup, I am cloning the MAC Address of my laptop, which has already been authenticated to the hotel Wi-Fi through the captive portal. After going through this process, I am able to connect multiple devices to my TP Link router and the internet connection is stable for a few minutes.
