How to change WPA key automatically

Greetings folks !

This is a simple question. I need to know if it's possible to configure a wireless AP/Routeur to change WPA key every X seconds/minutes.

This question is for a hotel wireless lan network.

Thank you

here is what you need:

WG-602 Wireless Subscriber Gateway
it comes with a small network attachable Thermal Printer to print the tickets.
software will put a new key with a certain valid time for each ticket that you print out.

everything is described here:

no - that is not gona work and makes no sence basicaly.

to get a hotel wired up with wlan very easy is to call your provider, normally they offer the service of puting hotspots into your hotel that you can use with timecards that people can buy at your reception desk.

if oyu want to manage it on your own, then there is some ticketing solutions for wlan.
let me look that up for you and i can post you a link, give me a second.

i know of a solution (we use it at my company) for a public hotspot that is very nice.

you have a small printer attached to the hostpot that can print tickets, the hotspot will then give a password to each ticket, the ticket is only valid for a certain ammount of time.

i will be able to tell you what the name of it is, but not yet, need to wait til im back at work tomorrow.

If you change the key every short amount of time, then everyone that's using the old key will be kicked out. Sounds really inconvenient, are you sure that's what you want to do?

Awhh.... no this is not what I want i'm sorry for that.

What I want is that when the customer check-in, I give him a WPA key to access the wireless network. Once he checked out, the WPA key that I give him shouldn't work anymore.

This make more sense ;)

thank you
