Hello,
I have small Cafe and I can not offord to buy fancy software (>$400) to do what I want to do.

Is there a way I can limit my customers to 2 hours wifi access using my regular 802.11n LinkSys Router or Cisco router? Or Must I buy this expensive software?

I don't think it can be done automatically via a domestic router.


How do you admit them to the network ? If you use wireless access list you could cut them off after two hours manually just by removing their MAC id from the list (maybe you need to also buy some alarm clocks).

In any case I can't believe it's beyond your ingenuity as a trader -- after all how do you stop people nursing one coffee for 2 hours ?
