Restrict network access until user authenticated against remote database.

I want to set up a wireless network which will allow users to access only one internet website where they can buy surfing time.  Once they have an account, I want the firewall at the access point to allow them to surf the internet freely.

I think this will require rewriting the firewall in the access point restricting access based on MAC address, but how do I go about doing this.  Setting up the central database is no trouble, but how do I get the firewall to talk to it?

Many thanks,
