1. A computer connected to the Internet with 2 LAN adapters.
If you use a laptop, you can connect it to the Internet via a Wi-Fi adapter (LAN card #1) and have a spare Ethernet LAN card (LAN card #2).
2. An extra Wi-Fi router, not connected to your network.
The idea is that you share the Internet via your server computer from LAN card #1 to LAN card #2 and Wi-Fi router.
Open main menu > Setup > Wi-Fi setup wizard, which should help you setup the correct network topology:
Select a LAN card which connects the computer to the Internet, a LAN card shared to your customers and your Wi-Fi router model.
Reset your router to the default settings. Adjust LAN card #2 IP address so you can connect to your Wi-Fi router from the server computer.
Connect LAN card #2 with Ethernet cable to your Wi-Fi router LAN (not WAN/Internet!) port.
Depending on your router model switch it to the access point mode or if there is no such an option, disable router DHCP.
Select a LAN card which connects the computer to the Internet, LAN card shared to your customers and your Wi-Fi router model.
If for some reason Internet Connection Sharing is not OK for you, you could try some other alternative Windows routing software. We recommend using NAT32 since many our clients use it and it proves to work well with our program.
Connect a Wi-Fi laptop to your router and try opening any website. You should get the login page. Type your customer/ticket login/password to log in. Try login/password = test/test by default.
