How to Configure a Captive Portal on the DWC-1000
Overview
This guide describes how to configure and customize a captive portal on the D-Link DWC-1000
Unified Controller for user authentication.
How to Configure a Captive Portal on the DWC-1000
Users can enable the captive portal function on one or multiple SSIDs. When a user accesses an SSID for
which captive portal has been enabled, the Unified Access Point (UAP) redirects the access page to an
authentication page (captive portal page) if the user has not been authenticated. If the user enters the
correct username and password, he will be granted Internet access. If not, the user’s access request is
blocked by the UAP. The authentication methods include local database and external RADIUS server.
Users can also customize the captive portal page by changing the banner and background, and adding
text.
Situation Note
Many companies, businesses, and public facilities have enabled wired or wireless Internet connections in
their public spaces such as meeting rooms, libraries, restaurants, and parks. Through user authentication,
these places can easily control their Internet resources and manage user accounts. Most require users to
input a valid username and password in order to access the Internet.
The scenario in this guide shows you how to configure a Captive Portal for the dlink_guest SSID,
dlink_obu SSID, dlink_hq SSID, and VLAN4. All connections from those SSIDs and VLAN 4 require
performing authentication before being granted Internet access.
The authentication methods on each SSID or VLAN 4 are difference:
 dlink_guest SSID: This SSID is for guest or visitor used. The guest or visitor is allowed get access
after he agrees Service-level Agreement (SLA).
 dlink_obu SSID: This SSID is for D-Link overseas employee while he visits D-Link headquarter.
The overseas employee uses temporary account to get access. The temporary account
generation is associated with Gust Management service. The captive portal login page is
customized with international images.
 dlink_hq SSID: This SSID is for D-Link headquarter employee. The authentication method is
used external RADIUS. The captive portal login page is used default profile.
NOTE: The screenshots in this guide are from the DWC-1000’s firmware version 4.2.0.2_WW. If you are using an
earlier version of the firmware, the screenshots may not be identical to what you see on your browser.
