Hi, we have to install a Instant 105 with 2 different SSID's. One of them is a Guest network with Captive Portal Authentication. Everything works fine until we unplug ethernet.
With no Ethernet (no Internet access) the Captive Portal never pops up and the users can not be authenticated. If we plug Ethernet, it works again.

What is the use case for disconnecting the ethernet cable on the IAP?

Some times our costumer need to use this AP in a meeting room to share an AppleTV and a collaborative applications. The other SSID have all the services that they need. Not all the users are employes, so they need to use a Guest Network to control the access.
In this case, the port in the meeting room has no access to Internet. We noted that it makes no difference if the Ethernet is plugged or not, the Captive Portal does not pop up.

You will need DNS resolution for the client to be redirected to the Captive portal page. Without internet access are you still able to resolve URLs?
