Hi All,

Before I post my questions regarding installing wifidog on wrt54g
here, I wanted to make certain there isn't a better place to pose
those kinds of questions (please let me know). If this is the place to
post such questions then please read on.

I've been following the installation instructions prepared at:


The node I'm preparing is intended for wirelesstoronto but I'm able to
deduce the differences in /etc/wifidog.conf.

My issue was running the command :

    wifidog –f –d -7

which I later discovered was a typo fixed in the wiki in a later
revision; it should have been:

    wifidog –f –d 7

Anyway, rerunning the command emmited quite a bit of information but
the last entry concerned me the most:

    (gateway.c:386) Could not create web server: Address already in use

Unable to really make sense of the issue I tried connecting to the
router wirelessly to find that I can connect successfuly but it passes
me directly to the internet without presenting the portal page.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
