[edit] 2009-07-29

Hiya. I made a lot of changes and updates to the Chillispot Wiki article on DD-WRT.

This took me a lot of time. I'm 70% disabled, and I got one 2-year old and a wife. Please, before making any changes to the article, consider if you are proficient at Chillispot, and general Wiki-editing proficiency is a major plus.

  • Formatting has been improved.
  • Spelling and grammar errors have been fixed.
  • The Executive Summary has been added. It's nice to have a non-geek-speak bullet-point outline.
  • The structure has been improved a lot. It should be simple for newbies to setup chillispot in about ten to twenty minutes.

Chillispot is a great utility. It sure beats the pants off NoCatSplash. For the hotspot, I can log into and use a WYSIWIG editor to update the splash-page, and set fine-grain options for clients.

The downside is the Chillispot module in DD-WRT has not been updated in, for-ever.

I hope to add instructions on how to download and run a much more recent copy of chilli instead of the one in the DD-WRT firmware.

I have this page 'watched', so if you want to add something and don't have time to integrate it into the article, leave it here on the talk page.

Please, do not tear up the structure of a carefully-constructed Wiki page, which took me about five (5) hours (at minimum, how time flies).

[edit] 2008ish

HELLO (knock, knock, anyone home?)

I deleted the discussion about setting router output power to 250mw after spending hours on the Chillispot article,

-- because discussion of Power Output has -nothing- to do with the Chillispot Wiki article.

Power Output is never ever mentioned once in the Chillispot article, either. Not that it belongs there.

If you, the undo-er, thinks discussion about Power Output, on an article about Chillispot is relevant, no, it isn't. I am going to assume you are just blindly going through the Wiki and clicking on things, and it was just a sort of stupid mistake, myself included, makes.

It's a bit silly, blindly undoing an edit, an automatic reaction, when you see (irrelevant information) has been removed. Could be the Talk text has nothing to do with the article? These two people might as well be discussing the price of hay in Bulgaria. Power Output has as much to do with Chillispot as QoS has to do with firmware flashing; yes, all those articles belong in the same Wiki about DD-wRT; this is their only similarity.

Updated the article. Fixing structural errors, spelling mistakes. Discussions relevant to the Wiki article "Chillispot" go here. Other discussions, questions about how to use Chilli, conversations about unrelated topics, go in the forum or in their related Wiki Talk page. Thanks!S2s2 00:13, 13 July 2008 (CEST)

Hello, I have a question, Is it possible to set to separate WLANs - one that will be unencrypted with chillispot for my neighbors and one with WPA2 without chillispot for my own use? If so, how can this be configured? I'm using v.24 SP1 with WRT-54GL V.1.1

S2s2 09:47, 13 October 2008 (CEST) Questions should go in the forum... PLEASE, read the above comment. It was not very clear before. Basically, this document is about discussion about changes or updates to the Wiki article only. I believe it is possible, yes, to answer your question. Why don't you try? If you do, you might learn something and then can come back and contribute to the Wiki on Chillispot on DD-WRT. Thanks!
