Does anybody know if there is any Linux/Windows software out there (happy to buy if required) that runs on a standard Linux/Windows PC and will 'manage' bog standard 'dumb' WAP's? There is a Hotel we look after and it has around 9 WAP's but we're looking to allow guests to 'sign on once' and then roam seamlessly but on a tight budget! Ideally, a nice Linux PC with some clever software to install, wide open WAP's with identical SSID's but on different frequencies (1 - 11) and through the Linux system would then allow users to roam would be my ideal solution!!
Am I dreaming, or is there a neat (and cheap) way to deliver true single sign on and roaming between dumb WAP's?
