authenticate system for internet access

Last Modified: 2010-04-02
Hello All,

My company is trying to set up an authenticate system, so that if a guest brings in a laptop and plug into our network, he'll need to put in a password before getting internet access. Something similar to the T-Mobile authentication in StarBucks. Or the library where you need to enter your library card number to access to the internet. What is the best way to accomplish this?

Thanks for your assistance.
