Hi all,

Bit of a generic question and one I hope is not outside of the scope of EE.

But have a client who would like to use his current ADSL connection to create a wireless ticketing system for clients to pay for a ticket and get 30mins/1hr wireless access. I just wanted to see if anyone could recommened some products that they have used before?

    According to k_dietz, it says:-

    "What you are looking to do is create a Wi-Fi "hotspot".

    A system such as this: could help your needs.  Another option:

    If you google "hotspot software" you'll see a ton of options at your disposal.  Some are free (but generally not as easy to setup), and others have a cost (but are much easier to set up)."

    As skylender says, you can use the Zyxel N4100.  It's a great hotspot router.
    However, you can use a normal printer connected to a PC, and simply use the web interface to issue tickets.

    Thanks for all the comments and feed back, I have contacted Zyxel and another company I found to be reasonable ( and have provided the options to the client who will ultimately decide.

    I have also put into the mix for good measure, thanks to skylender, jackieman for your input.
