Hi Zyxel Support Team,

Good Day!

Aside from the captive portal re-authentication after set time.
Is it possible to also set the SSID required for the WPA key at the same time of captive portal re-authentication?

Thank you and stay safe,
regards,
Bien Anthony Montiel

    Once the authentication is expired, the user should input again username and password on captive portal re-authentication page but no need to input WPA key again. 

    May you share more detail of scenario about your request?

    Hi @ BMontiel

     

    As @Zyxel_Nami previously mentioned, the AP's client does not need to re-enter the WPA key as the device will remember the key. This is the behavior of the end device. Therefore, your request may not be possible to fulfill.

    Hi Nami,

    Good day!
    Thank you for taking time on answering my inquiry.

    With regards to the scenario.
    After a certain SSID client captive portal re-authentication timer expired. Clients' WiFi connection must automatically disconnect to the SSID and re-connect by inputting the SSID WEP key/passphrase. 


    regards,
    Bien
