Wireless router mini server homepage

I want to use a wireless router to host a one page web site.

I will have a open wireless network that when accessed will just provide access to a small website hosted internally in the router. Much like the router configuration pages work.

Has anyone ever seen this? Does anyone know how to accomplish it?

Thanks,
Doug

Generally, wireless routers are designed so that the internal code (which generates the configuration Web pages) can't easily be modified.  You might be able to do this using DD-WRT, which is a customized, open-source firmware package for wireless routers, but it probably won't work with an off-the-shelf consumer-type wireless router.

As Scott1201 mentioned, you can do this with DD-WRT.
I personally have installed DD-WRT on a variety of different routers for both web and other services.

My personal favorite router for this purpose is the WRT54GL which is still readily available in the sub $100 category.
However, if you install DD-WRT, you will need to remove the default web interface in order to prevent unauthorized modification to your router.
This will mean your configuration will need to be done via command line, which may or may not be difficult to do if you have a linux background.

There is plenty of documentation available anyhow.

We've been using the Cisco/Linksys RV042 for years as: - an internet Gateway - a site-to-site VPN device - a leased line site-to-site subnet-to-subnet interface (And, here I'm assuming that any RV0xx behaves the same way as an RV042.  So that's …
In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.
