"Excellent software.Period."

October 25, 2014  |  By HotspotIst

 |  Version: HotSpot Software 4.1.8

Pros

I've been using it to provide internet service over fairly large area, over 500 users, multiple simultaneous devices, limit their browsing habits. It performs well if you know how to configure and if you know how to configure your network.

Cons

Had some minor support consultations until I got it setup.

Summary

Recommended for WiFi control.

"Very Buggy & flaky, would be good if it worked properly"

May 21, 2012  |  By vwpete

 |  Version: Antamedia HotSpot Software 2.9.0

Pros

Runs on windows

Cons

DHCP server has bugs
The network sharing does not work properly
Auto login for clients only works with one device.
Paypal payment service keeps failing
No support for setting up online payments
web interface for clients to create an account and top up does not flow properly.I could go on
Remote operator does not show how many connected clients, always reports zero
the user stats have bugs and do not show the correct usage information
Problems with IPADS and some phones connecting.

Summary

I have had nothing but problems with this software, support is terrible, they kind of know about the problems so they give you the run around as there is no fix. I have 20year exp in IT and have costs.

"Finally an excellent WiFi HotSpot program"

January 26, 2012  |  By alfreda71

 |  Version: Antamedia HotSpot Software 2.9.0

Pros

Antamedia was very user friendly, easy to understand by a non technical person like myself and easy to install and use. It is also quite versatile.
I also read the comments from customers and they were all positive and the common comment was it being very user friendly and we have proved it for ourselves. We are very satisfied with your product and your support services and we appreciate you and your team for all that.

"HotSpot software rocks"

January 28, 2010  |  By MartinColtridge

 |  Version: Antamedia HotSpot Software 2.5.2

Pros

Many useful options like NAT, bandwidth management, collecting customer data, control of free access and DHCP server. Further more, it`s also easy for setup.

Cons

Caching server function is still not included.

Summary

I use HotSpot software since version 1, but latest 2.5.2 version rocks. It's perfectly stable and we are reaching 130 online users with over 20 Mbit bandwidth.
Now i can set computer to act as gateway using HotSpot NAT and to provide DHCP on the network using Antamedia DHCP.
This way i avoid Windows messing up with my installation.
For people which met problems with the HotSpot software i will give couple recommendations:
Don`t forget that this is Windows based application and you must have stable Windows in order to use it without glitches.
Be sure that you have always latest Windows Updates and drivers for the network cards.
If you have doubts about your employee miss use over the gateway computer consider moving HotSpot gateway computer to back office and leaving only computer with the Operator panel on the front desk.

"V2.5.2 is perfect"

January 27, 2010  |  By BrianPlant

 |  Version: Antamedia HotSpot Software 2.5.2

Pros

There are tons of features, bandwidth works excellent

Cons

None at this point

Summary

We have been using Antamedia Hotspot for 3 years. Although first version had some issues, latest v2.5.2 is perfect. There are tons of features, bandwidth works excellent, but what I like the most is ability to setup remote operators. I can lockup main Hotspot in our hardware room, install operator interface for my employees on front desk, and limit all other features keeping them away from sensitive data. At the same time I can use operator interface on my home computer to track sales, edit users remotely and get reports realtime. I couldn't be happier. Great work Antamedia !
