Hi all.

I have the Ruckus 7762-T outdoor wireless AP. I want to setup hotspot in this device without ZoneDirector.
Can i setup AP to connect directly to Radius server (like Freeradius) without Zonedirector on my network?.
And please give me some instructions if i can do that!
Thank you.

If you have a Support contract, enter "hotspot" in the search box, and KBA article 'How to configure HotSpot on a standlone AP' has necessary info.

The KBA has screen shots to follow, but what you need most (in case you don't have a Support contract):

RADIUS configuration

Standard user configuration. For example :
jamoreno    User-Password == “ruckus”
    User-Name = jamoreno,
    Session-Timeout = 10000
Web page in Captive portal

An example of a web page to capture user/password information from the user:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">;
<html xmlns="">;
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<title>Wireless Internet Service</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
function get_param(name)
    if (location.href.indexOf("?") >= 0) {
        var query=location.href.split("?")[1];
        var params=query.split("&");
        for (var i = 0; i < params.length; i ++) {
            var value_pair=params[i].split("=");
            if (value_pair[0] == name) {
                return unescape(value_pair[1]);
    return "";

function submit_login()
    var action = "https://" + get_param("uamip") + ":" + get_param("uamhttps") + "/login";
    document.login_form.action = action;
    document.login_form.userurl.value = get_param("userurl");
    return true;
<h2>Wireless Internet Service</h2>
<form name="login_form" action="" method="post">
Username:<input type="text" name="username" />
Password:<input type="password" name="password" />
<input type="hidden" name="userurl" value="" />
<input type="submit" value="Login" onclick="submit_login();"/>
