Traffic shaping and firewall rules only apply after Splash page authentication has occurred

Captive portal strength settings take precedence over configured traffic shaping and firewall rules when the Splash page is configured. The traffic shaping and firewall rules will not apply to a client device until after the Splash page authentication has occurred successfully. Meraki recommends using the "Block all access until sign-on is complete" setting for Captive portal strength to prevent unauthorized access on the network. The "Allow non-HTTP traffic prior to sign-on" setting for Captive portal strength will ignore the firewall traffic shaping rules configured on the SSID and block HTTP traffic until the user is signed on. After sign-on, the SSID's firewall rules and traffic shaping rules will be applied.
