DD-WRT Anchorfree hotspot does not work and should be removed

9 May, 2009 (03:09) | Mindless Blather

There is only so much space in your firmware for crap. Anchorfree’s hotspot software seems like a good idea. but it isn’t. It didnt work in v24, v24sp1 and it sure doesn’t work in v24sp2, it reboots my 2 test aps. I have 4 different models of wireless ap I use with DD-WRT. I love it , I pay the guy money. Just saying, if it doesn’t work, fix it.

I tried calling Anchorfree tech support at 866-494-4123. The number has been disconnected. I also tried calling their CA number – 408-744-1002. I ended up forwarded to a voicemail of a very unfriendly voicemail message. I left my name, described the pizza place I was trying to get set up and asked for a ring back. That was last week. I give up on using anchorfree and suggest the DD-WRT folks yank it before any more people have to suffer through trying to get it to work.

Anchorfree’s client install works like a dream. Great free proxy service. And if you feel evil, you can easily use it and block the injected banner ads using the mvps hosts file.

Same problem. From Gran Canaria, Spain.

I never managed to make it work. DD-WRT should replace with FON or other that really works.
