This is an infant wiki! Help finish it!


Chillispot can be used for hotspot management. It requires a separate webserver to host the redirect url and a separate radius server (these may be installed on the same machine, of course).

If OS on Linksys is some prior version of DD-WRT, telnet or SSH to router. The following commands will erase the nvram. This means you must be able to connect to the router via the lan port of the WLAN port to do any further configuration.

mtd erase nvram 
  • Connect to the router. The password is now admin
  • Upload the version of DD-WRT that you plan to use (Note: Although it seems to indicate otherwise, the VPN variety of version 23 of the firmware does not seem to contain the chilli executable).
  • Repeat step 2. (the commands above)
  • Set the IP address on the WAN port to a static IP Address or somehow be able to know the IP address
  • Configure the router for remote management.
  • Reconnect to the router and upload the firmware. See below.
  • Reconnect to the router via the WAN port. This is required because you will now disable DHCP on the Main setting page.
  • Disable DHCP on the Main setting page
  • Reconnect to the router, set the output power to 250mw using the Wireless Advanced Settings page (This can be dangerous and is not completely neccesary.)
  • Reconnect to the router, disable Block Anonymous ICMP Requests and disable the Firewall
  • Reconnect to the router
  • enable SSH and/or telnet
  • enable reboot at 3:00 AM
  • configure Chillispot as follows:
set Radius server 1 to be the ip address of a your primary radius server 
set Radius server 2 to be the ip address of a your secondary radius server (use the same as server 1 if you only have one) 
set dns server to be the ip address of a dns server 
set radius secret to be your radius secret password 
set dhcp interface to be LAN and WLAN 
  • paste these entries into the additional Chillispot options:
radiuslisten the ipaddress set in step 4 
radiusauthport 1812
radiusacctport 1813
  • macauth required if you want to use the mac address as the username
  • macsuffix @some_name - This will be the realm used in RADIUS authentication
  • macpasswd some value if you want to pass this parameter
  • radiusnasid some_name_with_no_spaces
  • net any net of your choosing. This is the net assigned to Wireless Clients
  • domain the domain name supplied by the Chillispot DHCP server
  • uam Allowed any web address allowed without RADIUS authentication
  • dns2 the ip address of a dns server - optional
  • Make changes to radius listen port ip so that it matches the WAN port address set in step 4 above
  • Change the entry for net if desired. This is the DHCP network clients are assigned to when they connect
  • DO NOT enable Chillispot. Save setting and reboot router
  • Now enable Chillispot and reboot router
  • Go to Settings/Advanced Routing/Show Routing Tables. If Chillispot started, you should see the net specified in step 13(i).
  • Chillispot will not start unless it can see the dns server specified in step 11(f).
  • Other considerations
  • Update the RADIUS clients on your radius server

Chillispot info

If DD-WRT works with chillispot that is a key feature which should be built in and fully explained.

Does it? (If so I'll try to write it up when I get it working ;-)

If not, I won't have time to checkout DD-WRT.

September 3, 2005 Here is a draft configuration guide for using your WRT54G as a Hot Spot

I welcome your comments.


DD-WRT is basically a prepackaged version OpenWRT white russian that includes the chillispot software, among others. I have enabled the chillispot config on a linksys WRT54G successfully in conjunction with freeradius and apache located on a separate Debian linux installation in my DMZ. For kicks, I also have squid running on that Debian box. All works well except when I turn off ip forwarding in the hopes of just using squid in transparent proxy mode. In that case so far the connections drop from time to time. Anyway, the bottom line is "yes" it does work!


Es importante conciderar tambien que para usar Chillispot en DD-WRT es necesario tener los IP del servidor de chillispot los cuales le doy en este momento mas que todo si va ha configurar con el radius gratuito de chillispot:

radiusserver1 = espero que esto seha de ayuda a mis amigos de habla hispana

The [edited] babblefish version of Rommels' information is:

It is also important to consider that to use Chillispot in DD-WRT it is necessary to have the IP of the chillispot server which I give him at this point but that everything if it goes has to form with radius gratuitous of chillispot:

radiusserver1 = I hope that this is of aid to my friends of Hispanic speech

Just thought the translation is needed, since this is the English version of this WIKI. Sorry I could not do a better translation, but my Spanish is very poor. ... servant74 7733691083849297616361
