Network Configuration:

This setup consists of two networks separated by two VLANS. This example will use the following setup:

Network 1 – /24 – SSID: NET – Corporate Wireless Network
Network 2 – /16 – SSID: Guest – Wireless Guest Network


Step 1
– Enter the web GUI interface of the DSR using its IP address in a web browser. In our example we have used the IP address of


Accept any certificate warnings you may see, this is perfectly normal and safe

Step 2 – We first now need to create VLANs to separate the traffic

Network > VLAN Settings


Step 3 – Click on “Add New VLAN”


VLAN ID: 100
Name: Guest
Captive Portal: ON
Multi VLAN Subnet
IP Address:
Use the scroll bar to the left to scroll down…


Domain Name: Guest
Starting IP Address:
Ending IP Address:
Primary DNS Server:
Lease Time: 24
Click “Save”

Step 4 – We should see the following summary for our VLANS


Step 5 – We need to create our two profiles, “NET” and “Guest”

Wireless > Profiles


Step 6 – Right-click on “default1” and click “Edit”


Step 7 – Change the default values to your SSID. In our example we are using “NET” as our corporative wireless SSID


Broadcast SSID: ON
Security: WPA+WPA2
Encryption: TKIP+CCMP
Authentication: PSK
WPA Password: (enter a password for this SSID)
Click “Save”

Step 8 – Click on “Add New Profile” to create a profile for our Guest SSID


Profile Name: Guest
SSID: Guest
Broadcast SSID: ON
Security: OPEN (Due to our Guest users will need to authenticate with a user and password we will define later)
Click “Save”

Step 9 – You should have two Wireless Profiles (as per our example)


Step 10 – We now need to add an extra access-point to our configuration to deal with the profile “Guest”

Wireless > Access Points


Step 11 – Click on “Add New Access Point”


AP Name: ap2
Profile Name: Guest (Drop down box to display profiles available)
WLAN Partition: ON
*Active Time: Here you can set a time for from and to you would like the access-point to be available.


In our example, we have chosen not to use this feature

Click “Save”

Step 12 – We now need to associate the Guest SSID to VLAN100

Network > Port VLAN


Step 13 – Right-click on “Guest” and enter for PVID 100 (The VLAN we created in step 3)



Click “Save”

Step 14 – So that our guest users are able to login and authenticate against the local database, we need to add a new Group – Security > Internal User Database > Groups



Step 15 – Click on “Add New Group”


Group Name: CP
Description: Captive Portal
User Type: Network  Captive Portal User: ON
Idle Timeout: 10

Click “Save”

Group List Summary:


Step 16 – We now need to a associate a User to our new Group – Security > Internal User Database > Users


Step 17
– Click on “Add New User”


User Name
: CP
First Name: CP
Last Name: CP
Select Group: CP
MultiLogin: ON
Password: (Enter the password the guest will need to use for authentication)

Click “Save”

Users List Summary:


Login from a Laptop with Window 7:

Step 18 – Open your wireless card adapter and now search for SSID “Guest”


Step 19 – Once connected, open a web browser and try to go to a web site, for example dlink.com


Username: CP (User created in Step 17)

Password: (Password created in Step 17)

Click “Login”


Login from a Windows Phone:


Login from an iPad:


Step 20 – To see the clients connected – Status > Network Information > CaptivePortal Sessions


Step 21 – Within this section you are able to manage ALL connected devices by right-clicking over the session and choose between; “Disconnect” or “Blocking Device”


Disconnect – This will simply disconnect the wireless device from the session and will be forced to login via the portal

Block Device – This will block the wireless device and will automatically be placed into the Firewall Blocked Client List

  • Verify the ADSL cable is securely inserted into both themodem/router’s ADSL port and the microfilter.
  • If you have multiple telephone sockets on your premises, ensurethat the modem/router is connected to the master socket, i.e. theone closest to the point the telephone line enters thepremises.
  • If you have other devices attached to your telephone line,ensure that these are plugged into a microfilter. If the line issplit, e.g. using splitters or by having multiple extensions, makesure that the microfilter is plugged in before the split, or ensurethat all devices after the split are plugged into a microfilterthemselves.
