Hey Chuck,

My name is Chris Flugstad and I run a Wisp here in Seattle.  We have WiFi in 
the Marinas here and could give you the billing system infrastructure.  We 
use Monowall, and it ties into Radius Server, which is a part of our Billing 
System.  So for you clients, they could log in and put in their info, and 
pay with a Credit Card.  We would provide support for both billing and 
AP/monowall side, you would maintain the feed, and the hardware side.

We could also mail out Wifi hardware to clients through our company.  We 
have been supporting Wifi here in Seattle for the last 3 years.  If you have 
heard of a company BBXpress, we are in no way connected with them.  I say 
this due to their poor reputation of selling very expensive hardware and not 
supporting the internet.

Does this sound like something you'd be interested in or are you looking for 
something more basic?

Let me know, we can work out something, or I can direct you in a direction 
if you'd like.  Just thought I'd give a shout since I know a bit about the 
Marine Wifi industry.

Subject: [m0n0wall] Marina ISP... Any suggestions?

A client owns a marina with about 100 boats on premises during the
Summer Months. I asked him if he thought people would be interested in
Wireless (WiFi) internet access from their boats... He said that there
would probably be 10-20% interested as a guess.

My question is, does anyone know an easy proven way to provide wireless
wifi access to boats (I'm assuming they'll have laptops), how you would
handle the billing issues, what technologies to use... etc...

Because this is in the country-side, it would likely have to be a
Satellite linkup.

Has anyone managed to get Monowall to be a part of such solutions?
