There is this thing I wrote, called the NAA (network authentication appliance)


To my knowledge nobody outside of our site uses it.  But we use it

I have a client who has 3 restaurants and wants to provide wifi access
to the customers. He wants to be able to control who and when it can be
accessed. He is not planning on charging for the access at the moment

an idea or better yet implemented something like this?

Thanks in advance,
