Base64 is the easier authentication measure and its
very easy to keep someone logged in - there is no
session needed, but the browser does send the username
and password each time, so perhaps MD5 is needed.
However I haven't heard of a minitar AP being broken
into yet (and they use Base64).

Also, the message "Enter password, default: Admin/1234"
should be changeable to whatever we like, for example:
"Welcome to Alex's Network. Enter Password".

    Authentication is handled by the busybox httpd daemon. Password is stored in a
    crypt has and is actually set to the root password of the box.

    I'll make the popup customisable for you after the initial release.

    Popup is now customisable in the current BETA (see Device Name under Device
    Config)
