We are opening up a "public" wireless network in our employees lounge for them to use when off duty or between shifts.  What we would ideally like is for the first time they connect with a device and try to browse it redirects them to a web page with the companies internet usage policy that they have to Accept.  Sort of like when you connect at a hotel you have to enter a code or agree to pay before browsing.

Unfortunately we really don't have any serious web guru's on staff so any direction (links, etc.) on how to do something like this would be greatly appreciated.  I'm not even sure if it's possible through Windows Server or if we would have to have something like a WebSense devise, etc.  Any pointers greatly appreciated!

I believe that function starts with your wireless router.   Do you know the make/model number.

It does not look like your router can do that although somebody that knows enough to manually update your firmware probably could but that would be more work then it is worth if it could be done.

What you need is a router with the ability to have a captive portal.  http://www.intellinet-network.com/en-US/products/9236-guestgate-mk-ii

Captive Portal
GuestGate MK II offers must-have functions that define a captive portal. You can customize the welcome page by changing the text or uploading a new banner image, or you can change the welcome page completely because we give you full access to the HTML code.
The Walled-Garden functionality allows you to present Internet service to your guests, even if they have not authenticated themselves. Do you want to show the hotel services pages, company directory or special offers to all guests? Walled-Garden is the answer. Thanks to the “redirect after login” function you can forward your guests to a Web page of your choosing; e.g., special offers or your company’s Web site. If you’re worried about the amount of bandwidth the guest users are consuming, you can set a global bandwidth cap for both upload and download speed, thus guaranteeing that the guest network will always leave enough bandwidth for your crucial business applications.

Thank you.  After your original question I started poking around the Intellinet site and discovered that device as well.  Looks like exactly what we need.  Very much appreciated, I'd have never thought to look at the AP itself for the functionality.
