On the Walled Garden tab we need to add multiple entries. For each of the below domains, click Create New and enter the domain in the Destination Address field:
*.*insert access_domain here*

If you wish to support social network logins, you also need to add the following domains for each network you plan to support

Facebook *.facebook.com
X *.twitter.com
LinkedIn *.linkedin.com
Instagram *.instagram.com
Weibo *.weibo.com
VKontakte *.vk.me


Click OK to Save. Next, click the arrow beside the WiFi Networks header and then click the Create button. Configure with the following:

  • Name: Guest WiFi (or whatever you wish)
  • Usage Type: Hotspot Service
  • Hotspot Services: guestwifi
Click on the Show advanced configuration link and under the Others tab configure with the following:
  • Inactivity Timeout: 30 minutes

Click OK to Save.


To complete the set up you will need to SSH in to the Unleashed (Master AP) and type the commands below, one line at a time.

wlan "Guest Wi-Fi"
called-station-id-type ap-mac

This will set the correct parameter we require for the MAC of the AP to be sent in the RADIUS request.
