Changing the hotspot login page on a MikroTik router is a great way to personalize and brand your network’s login portal. In this article, I will guide you through the steps to change the hotspot login page on a MikroTik router, and provide some personal insights along the way.
Step 1: Accessing the MikroTik Router
To change the hotspot login page, you first need to access your MikroTik router’s web interface. Open your preferred web browser and enter the IP address of your router in the address bar. Once the login page loads, enter your username and password to log in.
Step 2: Navigating to the Hotspot Settings
After logging in to your MikroTik router, navigate to the “IP” menu and select “Hotspot” from the dropdown list. This will take you to the hotspot settings page, where you can configure your hotspot network.
Step 3: Customizing the Login Page
Now that you are on the hotspot settings page, scroll down to the “Login” tab. Here, you can customize the hotspot login page according to your preferences. You will find options to change the background image, text color, font size, and other visual elements of the login page. Feel free to experiment and make the login page truly your own.
Step 4: Uploading a Custom HTML File
If you want to go beyond the built-in customization options, you can create a custom HTML file for your hotspot login page and upload it to the router. To do this, select the “HTML” tab under the “Login” section. Here, you can upload your custom HTML file by clicking on the “Browse” button and selecting the file from your computer. Once the file is uploaded, click on the “Apply” button to save the changes.
Step 5: Testing the New Login Page
After customizing or uploading your new hotspot login page, it’s time to test it. Open a web browser and connect to your hotspot network. The login page should now reflect the changes you made. Make sure to check the appearance and functionality of the page to ensure everything is working as intended.
