    Basically I'd like to know if there are commands that can be put into the scripts area to restart the captive portal service?

    I got Captive Portal working (for awhile) but it seems to stop working after the access restriction disables wireless at night then comes back on later in the morning.

    i think i found my answer on a ddwrt page descriping nocatsplash which is similar to the Captive Portal in tomato, will test it tomorrow, i have e3000 hotspot setup at restaurant

    • Administration -> Scheduler -> Custom 1
    • I Set time to 5:30am everyday
    have this in box

    killall splashd
    sleep 5
    splashd >> /tmp/nocat.log 2>&1 &


    refined it a bit, seems to work good

    so router at night shuts off wireless at 1am, comes back on at 5:30am (Via Access Restrictions in Tomato)

    router at 5:45am does below commands, kills Captive portal, deletes the lease log file and then starts the captive portal again (via Scheduler in Tomato)

    killall splashd
    sleep 5
    rm -f /tmp/nocat.leases

    My Captive Portal in WNR3500lv2 TomatoRAF keeps crashing, so am using your script to execute every 240mins. Will post my feedback. Thanks for the tip.
