Help With Removing a Redirect Login Page

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello!
I'm trying to remove a router that our previous IT setup for our business. Its purpose is to redirect guests every time they connect to the internet
but most of our guests have problems connecting or they have no idea how to use the device they just bought.
Anyway, I'm trying to unplug this router and replace it with a new one. But when I unplug it and replace the old router with a new one the
old access points and a bridge stop working. Will I have to replace the old access points?

Reboot AP and bridge. Assuming you've copied most of the old router's settings to the new router.

See the issue is I can't even get into the old router. I don't have the password for it.

Can you access the repeater points? If not you will have to replace them as well. the old IT guy should have provided all the necessary information to the replacement and/or his employer if he left on good terms.

If you can get access to the repeater points, you should be able to reset whichever AP they are trying to communicate with. it is usually best to use the same brand of device when using wireless bridge/repeater configurations.

In the case of Netgear wireless repeating, the repeater stations get the MAC address of the base station input and the base station needs the MAC addresses of the repeater stations input. they also need to have the same wireless channels and security mode/key set.

Other AP/bridge capable wireless devices sometimes connect to a base station in the same manner as any computer, requiring no setup on the base station. (I have experience with TP-Link and Buffalo AP routers configured for bridge mode in this manner)

Edit: another thing you may be able to do is reset each of the APs to the factory default. you will lose all of the settings but this will give you access to all of the devices and allow you to rebuild the network without buying all new equipment.

In the case of not able to access the old router, better reset the AP. Looks like the reason AP doesn't work is due to it being on a different subnet as new router.
I'd configure the new router, make sure it's working, reset AP to factory default, then configure it to be in the same subnet. Example: if new router is set as 192.168.1.1 and DHCP is for IPs above 100, set AP as 192.168.1.2 or somewhere not in DHCP range. If bridge is configureable, set it as 192.168.1.3.

If old router is still in working condition and is wireless, you may be able to use it as another AP by disabling its WAN in setup and connecting new router to old's LAN port. Make sure to use a different wifi channel to avoid interference. If no radio, then use it as a switch.
