Router redirect

Hello, is it possible when someone logs on to my network that I can have it redirect to my website via the router? Ive read some where this might be possible I have the hub 2 

Please be patient with me ☺️

Thanks in advance

Re: Router redirect

I think you need to be a bit more specific in what you are wanting.

If you mean can you run a website on a PC on your network and make it accessible to the internet, then the answer is yes. You will need to give the relevant device a static LAN IP address on the device itself, forward the relevant ports (80 and 443) to the address and then use a Dynamic DNS service to steer people to your dynamic public IP address.

If your website is hosted by a hosting company your router and home network are not involved in any way.

Re: Router redirect

Hi thanks for the reply my website is hosted by a company I want to offer WiFi to my customers who visit the shop but what I would like is that when they connect to my WiFi it redirects them to my website like what happens when you sign in to a public hotspot or a hotel i.e travel lodge

I assume you are a business customer in which case you need to post on the business forum as the residential hub is different to the residential hub. https://business.forums.bt.com/

I doubt it will be possible directly, but there may be third party software that you can use.

Try https://business.bt.com/products/broadband-and-internet/guest-wifi/

I think there is a customised version where you can re-direct customers to your own page, just like they do in the M&S stores.

If you are running a shop, then that would be classed as business usage, which is not permitted on a residential account. To get full backup support, and a  fast repair time, BT Business is really the only option.

I would strongly advise that you go down that route, as it will save you a lot of hassle in the long run, as what you are asking, is not a problem for business users.

Why not ask what is possible, by posting on the BT Business forum. Its recently bee re-launched, and has active moderators who are BT Employees.

https://business.forums.bt.com/

You do not have to be a BT Business customer to post on that forum, and ask questions.

There is no guest network facility on the residential Home Hub

Post on their forum and ask. The moderators there are very helpful.
