-====== Wireless hotspot ====== 
-You want to setup a [[wp>​Hotspot (Wi-Fi)]] or a [[wp>​captive portal]]? 
- 
-  * [[doc:​howto:​wireless.hotspot.nodogsplash]] Another alternative from NoCat which aims to offer captive portal solutions local to the router/​gateway and a simplistic setup, user bandwidth control and basic auth/splash page. Nodogsplash is small, well tested, tailored for OpenWrt by its author and can be set up with only one or two config file changes, in contrast Chilli is more complete but complex to set up.  
-  * [[doc:​howto:​wireless.hotspot.nocatsplash]] NoCatSplash is the C port of NoCatAuth 
-  * [[doc:​howto:​wireless.hotspot.wifidog]] Originally forked from NoCatSplash and NoCatAuth,​ran at layer3 using iptables as opposed to chillispots layer2 solutions. Wifidog offers a simple package and none uci based configuration file. Users can be managed and controlled through the gateway and hooked into any custom user management. This solution creates a custom central user management system. You can build your own login page and user management system or use their own portal system. 
-  * [[doc:​howto:​wireless.hotspot.chillispot]] Layer 2 solution using a radius database for the backend user management and tracking. WARNING: This project may be dead. There hasn't really been much work on this project for years. Which leads to the next project. 
-  * [[doc:​howto:​wireless.hotspot.coova-chilli]] Built on top of Chillispot with several improvements and additions. Includes WISPr support, and much more. Main captive portal solution used in CoovaAP. 
-  * [[doc:​howto:​wireless.hotspot.pepperspot]] Another Chillispot fork. Support for IPv6 protocol, Wireless Protected Access (WPA). Also radius server backend.
