I am running into a positive fault with Social WiFi logins. When a device connects to a public network with Captive Portal, they are able login through a splash page and the choices of authentication. The running configuration for these public networks have been capturing every single login and session, even though these devices could be authenticating the same way (could be the same Facebook or email, etc). Now, when a device connects, Captive Portal simply allows that device to authenticate and connect without prompting its splash page. I do remember conversing with Peplink’s Michael Chan. He told me that Captive Portal basically operates within a 24-hour window between set Quotas. However, the devices used to test with are the same every time and are only logging on Captive Portal every 48 hours just to be sure set Quotas do not interfere with testing data and the devices are simply connecting without being prompted Captive Portal’s sign-in page.
This particular configuration in subject is used throughout my company’s customers, however, I am only experiencing this at one client-site and within our own office infrastructure. Could it be as simply as upgrading these routers and WAPs to recent firmware? we are currently running v6.3.3 for balance-one’s and v6.5.3 for AP-One’s.
