what i want to do is setup a captive portal thats set to show a picture of a doge (Shibu Inu) on my Linksys e3000 so when i put it in the car and drive around an area where a user is trying to find free wifi, he will see my router and connect to it only to find that there is a doge saying
"much bandwith. wow. so free internet. yes"
the router will have no internet connection. it will just be the router itself sitting in the car.
i got lighttpd working, now i need to figure out the captive portal part...i have been doing lots of reading but im not fully getting it.
also, does anyone know where im suppose to put the image of the doge in my webserver?
This has potential. Please, lets get this figured out and maybe Brainslayer could create a wiki page, "How to setup WiFiDoGe."
Down to business. From what I can tell, NoCatSplash should work for this. The tricky part is the lack of internet access. In this case, doge.jpg or whatever will have to be stored on jffs along with the splash page. Overall, it seems troublesome and it probably won't work anyway.
Now, say somebody hosts a splash webpage on the internet with "doge" in ASCII and everything is contained in the same html file. You connect the router to the internet, point to that website, and turn on NoCatSplash. DD-WRT should copy the html to jffs and bingo!
