Public/Guest network

Hi all... At my work we have our corporate wifi network and we have a guest or public use wifi network. We currently use Meraki authentication (local accounts) and change the password monthly, so our accounts are january@domain.com for example. I'd like to change this so there's some tie back to the users and not use generic accounts. Looking at the access control page in my dashboard the only 3rd party option is Google and not everyone uses Google. I like the sponsored authorization but it gets difficult with larger groups.

 

There's no way to offer multiple styles of authentication is there? So the page would offer Google, LDAP, or sponsored authentication on the same splash page for example.

Kind of a big deal

Re: Public/Guest network

Splash Access is a commercial portal provider.  Not too expensive.  They have lots of interesting options, like having a rotating daily WPA2 key and a QR code customers can scan to auto-setup the WiFi.

They also offer much more advanced guest amabassador functions.

Multiple authentication options, I don't believe is available.

 

My recommendation would be use WPA2 PreShared key that you change monthly (possibly with the API and randomly generated) Then use a click through splash page with your wifi policy displayed. This will allow all users to authenticate without accounts on specific services. The only downside would be if you wanted to capture those accounts.
