    What is normally done, is to have a central radius server that is used by all those wi-fi routers/APs you described. In this way, you can manage authentication to your wi-fi networks centrally, irrespective of which ISP they are connected to. Naturally all of them need to be able to reach your radius server.

    What is the area of that island?
    What kinda security you want in that network?
    Who are the users? What kinda service they want in addition to use the Internet?

    Oh, so you're after a commercial solution then.

    I can suggest that you should have:

    1. Radius server with wi-fi/dial-up compatible billing system, to account for user time management and create PINs.
    2. Use this gateway, or any other that matches this spec: Dlink DSA-3100
    3. Have other Access points act as repeaters, since the area you are describing is just 300m. Other access points can be much simpler than DSA-3100, but they must support repeater mode.
