Hello,
I was wondering if anyone knows of a router that will provide the option to have the user view a splash screen and agree to terms and conditions of use at a wifi hotspot?  I have looked at Nomadix, but they offer more features than I need. They are very $$$ also.

Thanks,

Jeff

There are a lot of SOHO routers that can run 3rd party firmware called OpenWRT, with this functionality.
Here is their supported hardware list. http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/start

You can use OpenWRT, DD-WRT, or any number of other options.
Here's an example setting up a splash page with DD-WRT

DD-WRT is supported on a long list of inexpensive wireless routers.

I downloaded the dd-wrt and flashed my wrt160n router.  The only firmware flash I could find was the mini version which does not include nocatflash  Is there a standard version of the firmware for the wrt160n that will work?
