Four-way to authentication.
- Mac Based
- Hotspot Based
- PPPoE Based
- Static IP Based
1. Mac Based Authentication
- The MAC address (short for media access control address) is the worldwide unique hardware address of a single network adapter.
- The MAC address can be bound to a user ID to prevent unauthorized access.
- Using MAC binding facility Multiple MAC addresses can be set in the single-user ID.
- control admits or denies wireless association based on the connecting device’s MAC address.
2. Hotspot Based Authentication
- A hotspot is a physical location where people may obtain Internet access, typically using Wi-Fi technology, via a wireless local area network (WLAN) using a router connected to an internet service provider (ISP).
- Public hotspots may be created by a business for use by customers, such as coffee shops as well as hotels.
- When mobile devices connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot that uses a captive portal and the web browser is automatically opened but so that the user can sign in.
- Until this authentication process is completed, the Wi-Fi hotspot connection is not available for applications and services running on the device.
4. Static IP Based
- Static IP address means Internet service provider (ISP) provides a permanent address to the computer.
- A static IP address makes it easier to work remotely using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) or other remote access programs.
- Static IP addresses are much easier to set up and manage with DNS servers.
- users through DHCP, it is also possible to monitor an IP address reservations in the active reservations section.
- also, select add new to add the new static IP address to your router’s configuration.
