Providing "free wifi" at condo?
Posted on 2011-09-05
I'd like to provide "free wifi" in our condo's social room as an amenity.
However, I don't want to provide "free wifi" to the people who live right next to it because Comcast is our provider, and we have a 250 gig / month cap.
I also don't want to create any legal problems.
1. How to I prevent any legal/liability issues: what if someone downloads illegal music or porn from the internet connection registered to the condo? Do those "I accept" web redirect things you see at hotel wifi mean anything in that regard? Is that something that can be done with a cheap $50 router, or do I need something fancy?
2. How can I protect our bandwidth from the cheap-skates who live next door and would love to cancel their comcast connection and just use our "free wifi"?
3. Do I have to let Comcast know I'm operating a "free wifi" spot? Isn't it in their EULA that you can't share internet with your neighbor?
I sounds more complicated than buying a $50 linksys router and connecting it to our comcast cable modem.
Any & All suggestions would be very much appreciated,
