    i have about 20 users using captive portal everything is working…. but….

    immedaitly after authentication the little popup says “connecting to network”, it stays there for about 45 seconds and then finally connects. This happens to all users. I have plugged in directly to my linux box to make sure it is not network related and the same thing happens….

    after I rebooted … it was fast one time… after that it slowed back down again

    I am using 1.04

    any thoughts?

    What type of CPU and frequency do you have on the box on which Zeroshell runs?
    Try to check the Load Average with the top command from the console and in any case read the faq http://www.zeroshell.net/eng/faq/wifi/#wifi.faq10

    From e serial or VGA console, type the key ‘S’ and when it’s requested type the admin’s password. Now from the prompt you have to type the command ‘top’ which will show you the load average and other information.
    In any case your cpu it is very fast and I don’t think the problem it is the load average.

    If you’re clients are configured to use zeroshell for dns, on one client, try using an upstream dns server to see if dns is the problem.

    I had an issue with zeroshell’s dns server… There’s no place to set a forwarder (other than using the shell and editing named.conf), and the zeroshell box didn’t forward requests correctly. I can’t remember what I did to fix this though.
