Wifi FAQ's

Answers to common questions about Wifi Splash and Wifi hardware installation.

Pre-Sales

Can I use my existing wifi harware?

If you already provide free wifi at your establishment chances are you won't have to replace all of your hardware. You will likely continue to use your exisiting aerials/radios. We recommmend upgrading your router to MikroTik, but if you have a pre-existing Cisco Meraki access point, or 4ipnet hotspot router* you can use your exising hardware immediatley. *NB. 4ipnet routers have limited funtionality.

Can I schedule my ads/campaigns?

Yes. You can scedule campaigns by time or day (eg. Promote breakfst specials in the morning and dinner specials in the afternoon), or you can have a campaign automatically start and stop, falling back to the default afterwards.

Can I see how many people are using my wifi?

Yes. As well as weekly summaries delivered to your inbox, you also have 24/7 access to live data and reporting. If you are an existing customer, simply click the login button above.

I have multiple locations, can I display different ads at each location?

Yes. You can display a different ads/campaigns per location or the same one. You can even have different campaigns at the same location via a different SSID's.

Do you support multiple timezones?

Yes. Every device has it's own timezone. So you can have devices in New Zealand and Victoria (for example) and use local time for reporting and scheduling.

Can I see which ads people clicked on?

Yes. All ad views are logged and this information is included in your weekly email summary and in more detail via the Dashboard.

How do I find my local installer?

For installations or enquiries in New Zeland please contact Wholehouse Systems. For installations or enquiries in Australia please contact Original IT. Anyone outside of New Zealand and Australia please contact us.

How much is my investment?

Investment varies from site to site. But it's probably much cheaper than you think. Ongoing running costs are very low, and (if you need it) the hardware is a very reasonable one-off investment with options to choose from.


IT Professionals

What is the minimum suported version of RouterOS?

Wifi Splash is tested and stable on 5.26+ There is no reason why it would not work on older versions. If you are running Wifi Splash on a earlier version of RouterOS, please let us know.

Can I use another router instead of the MikroTik?

As well as MikroTik, which is highly recommended, we also support Cisco Meraki cloud managed access points and 4ipnet hotspot routers.
