As I understand, no.... But since the Maestro is running Windows I think it would be an "easy" fix...

With Version 2 and Depending on the bandwidth and latency of their network and their firewall settings it should work. 

If you have to login using a WEB page then it WILL NOT WORK.

With version 2 if it is to work on their network then you should just have to set the WiFi password and let the Maestro login to the SMARTLINK server and then your radio. 

I have had fair success with different WiFi networks just keep the waterfall "Rate" and Pan-adapter "FPS" speed down as far as you can stand it on the display. 

It works good using my Cellphone hot spot so where I have 4G cell service I can run the Maestro.

Not yet.  It is a feature slated to be added to the Maestro.
