Hey Jonas,


We're using a box running m0n0wall as the captive portal for a semi- 
large open hotspot (i.e. no payment required). So far, it's been  
working great and there's really nothing to complain about, but as I  
said we haven't had to touch the Radius auth parts _yet_ as the WLAN  
is free-for-all.


I've heard good things about the DLINK DSA 3100P and also ZyXEL's  
ZyAir B-4000. I don't know how well these will work with your  
specific setup, but it's a place to start - right? I believe  
InWarehouse (http://inwarehouse.se/) carry both products, so you  
might want to check in with them to see if perhaps they can assist  
your further.

(Oh, I found the href for you: "http://inwarehouse.se/

Good luck.




Kind Regards,
Didde
