I want to setup a free Wireless (802.11b/g) HotSpot in a common area outside of my office. I am going to provide the service for free, but the Internet access itself will cost upwards of $100 a month. I don't want to charge for use of the Internet access, but want to be able to recoup some of the money that it will cost to run it.
What I would like to do is allow the users to connect and have a "Home Page" that they are required to view. That Home Page will have a user agreement and some ads that will pay for the cost of the Internet access.
Basically, I am looking for something like the Nomadix devices (http://www.nomadix.com/products/
), but without the cost. I also found SputnikNet Express (http://www.sputnik.com/products/snet/sputniknet_express.html
), but would like to be able to customize the main page to include the user agreement and ads, but don't want the monthly cost.
