I am looking for a device, perhaps an access point, that will print an authorization code for 2 hrs, 4 hrs, 24 hrs or anything in between and also be able to lockdown during closed hours.

Nomadix makes such a device and owns the patent on it.  They have a "HotSpot in a Box" and advertise it specifically for coffee shops.

You can find it on CDW's Web site at
