Set-up wifi in my coffee shop

Hi

I would like to set-up a wifi network in my coffee shop, but would like to do it for as cheap as possible. Can anyone let me know how to do this from scratch? I'm not sure if I want to provide it as a completely free service, provide people with a login key when they purchased a coffee, or charge them for using the service - so I would like a flexible solution.

Also, maybe the option to show adverts on the homepage when they connect might be useful, if easily done?

Thanks for your help.

thanks for the replies. Not sure either of these are what I'm looking for so far.

@ rionroc: This looks more like a cyber cafe type solution. I just want to let people bring their own laptops in and connect to my wifi network.

@ stevenpeters: Not sure this is what I was looking for either. Will these hotspot managers allow me to view the number of people connecting? how long they connect for? and provide a key if I want to charge them/make it only available to people who buy something?

Thanks

Hmmm, looks good, but looks very complicated. I'm starting from scratch here.
