    hi
    i am looking into setting up a few free wifi access points around my area

    i am looking to cover a few busy caravan/campsites that will be booming as summer arrives. i am looking to offer free internet to users that complete an offer (************** gateway style)

    ok with that in mind i am not really in the know about the software i can use to control access times (1hr per completed ofer)

    also what is the best way to handle this kind of access point?

    i will gladly send out a reward of a $xx to anyone who can give me advice on this that helps me get set up quickly


    Cheers

    any advice will be apreciated

    Lee

    to control the access time of hotspot users you need a piece of software called "captive portal"

    You can set custom start page when users connecting to the hotspot

    I'm not sure though perhaps you need a custom software to make sure the same user won't arrive to the same offers

    And you need to consider that the users will all be filling the offers from the same public IP
    perhaps there's a way to get around this

    Good luck

    thanks will look into that software

    i am going to try and clear it with a few affiliates before hand see what they say about it
    i live in a very active tourist area in spain so i also need to be able to select language then set a gateway for each main language and match with offers rather than using geoip
    but that can be acheived via php coding
    i just need to get my head around the access point setup
