  • You must restart your computer after installing MyHotspot.
  • If you use Windows Vista/7/8/10 make sure to run MyHotspot with administrator rights. Right click on the program, and click on "Run as administrator".

2. Launch the program and at the Network Configuration window, make sure Automatic is selected and choose the adapter that connects to the internet at the top drop down menu and the hotspot below. Click Next.

Hardware installation:
  • Connect the first network card (LAN1) or the USB surf stick to the Internet and make sure that the Internet connection is working on your computer, and the IP assigned to this network card is not "192.168.0.x" and not "192.168.137.x".
  • Connect the second network card (LAN2) to LAN port (not to WAN port) of your wireless access point or wireless router.
    (Example: NETGEAR-WLAN-Router)

  • Configuration of the Wireless Access Point:
    • Disable by default the wireless security for your router or access point. You can Optionally encrypt the access to your Wireless Router or Access Point.
      (Example: NETGEAR-WLAN-Router)
    • You will also have to specify a static IP addresse of the LAN port of your Wireless access point.You'll need to http in to your access point and assign the new IP address "" by XP/Vista or "" by Win7/8/10.

Importanti dito is yung  Source ng Internet ay hindi or , dahil sa ICS  yung taga bato dapat ng internet ang siyang  may IP example dito is yung adhoc or WLAN2 siya. WLAN naman is naka konek sa modem kong SmartBro kaya siya.

Check This post how to Create Adhoc and about ICS

Shared  over LAN , from WLAN to LAN


4. Here, we’re going to enable a simple test login to verify the connection works. Click on the Edit menu -> Hotspot Configuration -> Access, then click the blue Advanced setting button. Tick “Enable guest-login”, adding a password is optional, click Close.

5. Like the previous hotspot software you need to now go to a device which can connect to the hotspot, such as another computer or tablet, connect to it , and then try to open a webpage. You should be greeted with the MyHotspot default login page…  or Type on your browser this IP address


MyHotspot provides you with a table overview containing all internet sessions on you WIFI-Hotspot. You can use this manager to end a internet session.

Pricing  Go to Edit Tariff and security  Change the Value like on this image. Just edit the Defaults.

  I suggest create a tariff for each promo or plan separate  per time or per MB bandwidth limit tariff.

QOS or Bandwidth  management

Example per Hour Tariff with  required  credit to use...

Tariff with Bandwidth Limit with required credit to use...  ( you must select billing system below)

Create Prepaid Code

Or I suggest the prepaid expired in the number of day after first login

NOTE : Create Prepaid base on the Tariff and number of credits required for that Tariff ( para iwas lito or confusion)


Hotspot Configuration

Here you can customize your login portal page set Free Website Free Login via social network  and Firewall etc..

MyHotSpot is setup to work with tariffs and payments which is fine if that’s what you want, more problematic if you just want to use access logins for time or bandwidth usage. What you will need to do is go to Edit -> “Tariffs and Security” and set all tariff rate options to zero money and then create a user from there. Once set correctly, it does work quite well. The icons down the left of the main window will show the log and information about who’s connected and duration/traffic used.

Para sa Free WIFI siyempre dapat i limit yung  gawin nyo 1 per day (limit the Free WiFi usage per user..

Server Configuration

wala naman masiyadong gagalawin dito  yung currency Php or  printer lang..

On Firewall you can Block any port Example Clash of Clan TCP port 9339  then Disable it.

NOTE: If the Login Page is not working it means you have programs already using port 80, I suggest use a newly reformat PC or Laptops if you want to use this..

UPDATE:  Today  August 11, 2015  I tested it on Windows 10 and it works!!

So much techie terms here. Haha. Btw, I am having problems using hotspot. Why is it always SLOOOOOOOWWWW! :(

Russ R. said...

These days, people find it important to always be connected. In fact, it is sometimes thought of to be a mortal sin to have a business and NOT have free ( or even paid ) wifi. So I see the value of MyHotspot for businesses like coffee shops or restaurants. While all these look a bit too technical for me, I'm sure that once in place, businesses and their clients are sure to enjoy the benefits of being connected.

Sounds very similar to those used at cafes near train stations. Thank you for sharing, I'll need this tutorial.

Jaime Lacson said...

Yes, even at Home you can use this to monitor your bandwidth limit ,We know that Internet Provider they have Fake Unli promos.. they have FUP or Fair Usage Policy .. when you hit the daily or monthly Bandwidth limit you Internet Connection will be slow as Dial Up..

People has included wifi in their basic needs so this is a great business.

Millie Manahan said...

Ohhhh.. This is nice to know! I am not sure where I experienced logging in to this eh. It was a hotel... But, this is a good investment for businesses talaga!

Meikah Ybañez-Delid said...

Wow thanks for this tech sharing! But really, establishments like resto and hotels should have free wifi na :D

Patricia Cuyugan said...

This is super useful, but a bit on the techy side for me hahaha. Need to ask my husband to walk me through the process. I'm sure he'd understand it better than me. :)

Janice Lim said...

This is great for commercial establishments. I think I've used something similar to this in some malls around the metro.

Louise Banta said...

What a very detailed blog post about hotspot! So this is what most malls and other establishments use for their customers. It's good that there's a limit of an hour so for other people especially the teens, they wouldn't stay long in the store; this is to give way to other customers as well.
