My company offers internet access in a few buildings that have several access points, currently customers send us payment over the phone for daily, weekly, monthly access and we verbally give them the password to the network. We cant police access because of all the different plans & changing AP passwords manually has become too cumbersome.

Here is what would like to implement and want to know the most cost effect solution.

When potential users in the building try to connect to our network (Via AP’s) we want them directed to a splash page where they would need to sign up for a plan (daily, weekly, monthly) access. We would want some authentication software to run on a virtual Amazon server and billing to be sent to us via recurly ( https://recurly.com/)

We want the software to manage the subscriptions and and access.

I appreciate any detailed replies on the best solution.

You are looking for a captive portal. I'm assuming you are getting paid so I'm not going to give you detailed instructions on setting it up for free. Do some research on how to use captive portals and go from there. What you're wanting should be fairly easy to do once you know what pieces you need to fit together. Good luck

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
