Hi folks,

I am having a few funny issues with the cafenet network in Hamilton and wondered if anyone has had similar experiences on cafenet here in Hamilton or elsewhere around NZ.

For starters, the captive portal seems to time out frequently, which is rather annoying as it does not redirect you to the page you originally intended to visit.

Secondly, I have no trouble connection via the onboard wifi on my laptop, but when I try to connect via my engenius client bridge (for better signal) something funny happens.

I get given a DHCP lease and was able to test pinging another PC connected to cafenet at the time (discovered via avahi/zeroconf/bonjour), and the latency figures suggest this is going over a WAN link, however I am unable to ping or connect the the DNS server/default gateway (same IP) at all, or route any traffic out the default gateway.

Cheers,

Rene
