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 granted internet access. In this way, it offers unique marketing opportunities for small businesses to improve brand awareness and deliver marketing messages.
Note: Captive Portal is available only when the device works in Access Point mode or Multi-SSID mode.

- Go to Settings > Wireless > Portal.
- Enable Portal.
- Select the effective Wi-Fi network for portal authentication.
- Set Authentication Type to Simple Password and set a password for clients. Or select No Authentication if you want to allow clients to access the network without any authentication.

- (Optional) Enable Redirect and enter your desired website. Newly connected clients will be redirected to the specified website.
