Can Mevo Join Enterprise Wi-Fi Networks or Networks with Captive Portals?

Mevo can join most Wi-Fi networks. Supported Wi-Fi network types include:

  • WEP
  • WPA
  • WPA2
  • WPA/WPA2 Enterprise
  • Non-secured

However, Mevo cannot join networks with a captive portal. 

The difference between "Enterprise Networks" and "Captive Portal Networks" are:

  • WPA/WPA2 Enterprise Networks: Authorization required by using an username and password. Common at universities. 
  • Captive Portal: Provides a landing page presented by the ISP which the user must agree to terms prior to gaining access to the Internet. Common in hotels.

 

Getting around a captive portal.

There are devices that act as repeaters to get you around a captive portal referred to as travel routers. This product here has not been extensively tested, however, we have had positive results using networks with captive portals. You can follow their guide here to do this.

 

If you are on a WPA/WPA2 Enterprise network, see here for setup instructions.

All other supported Wi-Fi networks can connect using these instructions.

  • Are there any plans (or is it not technically possible) to be able to connect to Captive portal Wifis? 

    Quite common use case, and it should be possible to accept the terms using the App?
