Setting up a mobile hotspot.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Basically, I'm looking to create a mobile hotspot to promote my business and I was looking for systems that allow my to create a splash page to anyone who connects to wifi.

I was looking at HotSpotSystems and it's pretty interesting. I don't have much time to set up a hotspot right now so I'm hoping to think through the process and implement it during the off-peak hours.

I have an Asus Rt-n16 running DD-WRT (planning on installing hi-gain antennas), and I'm thinking about creating two SSID. One for the hotspot and one for personal use. Either that or put up a 2nd wireless router in my network and have each dedicated to it's own purpose.

Anyways, I was looking for a way to run a splash page for anyone who connects to my hotspot to promote my business. However, I also want to have a time limit regarding how long someone can stay connected. Basically, I want to automatically kick someone off ever 30-45 minutes so they have to reconnect and refer back to my splash page.

ex:
User connects
User views splash and clicks the authentication (no password or username, just a regular accept)
User can connect for 30-45 minutes and is disconnected
User is required to reconnect to wifi
User views splash and clicks the authentication

Basically, its for me to advertise my business constantly and prevent freeloaders from hogging bandwidth on large downloads.
Are there any alternatives to HotSpotSystem that allows me to do that via DD-WRT?

I was hoping to post so I can walk myself through the process as well.

A friend of mine set up a wireless hotspot once and he told me to tell you to look into nocatsplash. It's a portal program in dd-wrt that works on the RT-N16. I hope this helps.
