Cisco wireless - autonomous APs with web banner for guest login

We're rolling out a small number of Cisco autonomous APs for a customer, and I need to determine if there's any way to handle guest SSID accounts with some form of "acceptable use" banner/web page. This is built-in feature on Cisco wireless LAN controller (WLC) environments (lightweight, controller-based APs), but this is a non-controller-based solution.

I've been through the entire 1242 configuration guide with no luck. Something this simple seems like it'd be a built-in feature for the "heavy" AP solutions also.

Thanks, and links/references are always appreciated.

I have not seen it on the Autonomous AP's

but

You can put guest's in vlan, and use a GW to do the web auth.

Agree with diepes - this is not directly supported on autonomous APs.  Another suggestion is something like a Nomadix box, if you want an enterprise-level solution.
