    Hi,

    I have business class DSL in a strip mall. I'd like to sell access to
    my wireless access point. My DSL contract allows this.

    Is there any existing software that manages the collect credit-card
    and grant access process? Is this typically done using the MAC address
    of the wlan client?

    If software doesn't already exist I guess I'll need to write some. I
    assume this would be best done using Linux because the
    firewall/routing capabilities are robust and easy to manage. Any
    comments?

    Thanks,
    John
