    displaying default page when connecting to wireless lan router -howto?

    Hi,

    When connecting to commercial wifi-providers one is often transferred
    to a login-page on the browser. How ist this done technically? How can
    I transfer people logging in to my wlan-router to a startoff page,
    regardless of url they are entering in the browser?

    thanks,
    stephan

    Here is one way:

    Basically, all of the popular hotspot packages offer what you're
    looking for.

    BTW - just a clarification - as you will see from the URL -
    the "hotspot package" is a feature of some alternate firmware offerings
    that get loaded into your WAP in place of the vendor supplied firmware.

    Some high end commercial WAP products have this capability
    since they are built for this purpose out of the box,
    but not true for the majority of the WAPs you find in the big box stores.
