Turris - OpenWRT and guest access

In my previous blog post I described the way how to configure the Turris router for my home network.

In my solution I'm using the nodogsplash captive portal solution which offers simple way to provide restricted access to an Internet connection. Here is the extended network diagram:

Start with creating the Guest WiFi (http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/recipes/guest-wlan):

Next install and configure nodogsplash:

Here is the video how the Captive portal will looks like:

The full OpenWrt router configs can be found here:

Enjoy :-)
