Hotspot Clients Login

9. Now, when clients connect to the selected router interface and try to access the Internet, they will be redirected to "portal.draytek.com".

NOTE:If there's no certificate installed, due to security concerns, the browser might warn that it cannot verify server identity, the clients would need to tap "Continue" before they can proceed to portal.draytek.com.

10. Tap on a login method, and it will open the social media login page. Enter the social media accounts and password to log in.

11. If the credentials are correct, the client will be redirected to the landing page and be able to access the Internet afterward

Check User Login History

12. The network administrator can plug a USB disk to the router to record the basic information of the users who connect to the Wi-Fi and log in with their social media accounts. It will be listed on Hotspot Web Portal >> Users Information page.

Troubleshooting:

1. The client might not be able to access "portal.draytek.com" if this domain name is resolved by a DNS server on LAN. If so, set up LAN DNS to make sure the domain name will be resolved to the router's LAN IP.

2. If you get a blank page after clicking "Login with Facebook," it's probably that the APP ID or APP Secret is incorrect. Please confirm the entry again then try again.
