I am looking for a way to restrict access to the internet on our company's wireless network by creating a default home page that requires a login to get past it. I have seen other companies use this type of access restriction, but I do not know how to create it. I have already used all the standard methods of access control (restricting with a WEP, MAC address restrictions), but these all require a bit of effort to allow a guest to access the internet. Does anyone know how this can be done easily? Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Steve

I forgot to add that if they do not authenticate, I would like them to still be able to browse the company intranet

well..there are a couple of methods....

hotels and the like use specific networking devices that route internet requests to an authentication page that require you to log in to gain access (so y ou can't just sit in the parking lot)...

you could get a proxy server that requires authentication (there are alot of free and paid proxy server packages taht can handle authentication)

i've got a barracuda networks webfilter 310 that has LDAP integration so that i can control internet access based on AD group memberships....it also is a content filter, spyware filter, and virus filter...reallly nifty stuff..
