Hi, 

 

That really depends on those WiFi networks I believe. This travel router should be designed to work with different captive portal networks, when connecting it to that network and you can see the portal authentication, that means you made it. However, I saw some posts mentioning the portal popup just doesn't show up when connecting to the travel router, you check it here.

 

faded_memories shared a solution here, maybe you can give it a try.

I've set several TP-Link routers up to act like an extender\Access Point,  all I did really was (and its relatively easy)

 

Logged into the Admin page.

Give the router a new LAN IP (so my main router is 192.168 5.1 as an example, I made sure the IP address on the router is 192.168.1.50).

Set the wireless networks up with different Network SSID and passwords.

Disabled DCHP.

Rebooted.

 

I've used power lines, so I'm not trailing cables all over the house, and from the power lines Ethernet port, plugged it into LAN Port 1
