First post so bare with me :)
have a client that has gone for an integrated hotspot solution from netcomm
Product is a HS960 - http://www.netcomm.com.au/products/hotspots/hs960
its basically a captive portal with built in authentication, billing and attached account printer.
The client provides student accommodation. the internet is used from their own laptops or 2 shared kiosks pc's (also connected via wireless to the portal)
within the hotspot there is no way to limit bandwidth via quota (ie: 500mb per day per user) they also needs some way to filter adult content from a gateway level.
i have looked at a few solutions so far but nothing that really fits in the environment.
the plan will be to build a proxy/firewall/gateway from a desktop PC that can be utilized for basic file/print services as well.
looking for open source or low cost solutions
see attached network diagram
Any input is appreciated.
