Thank you very much Alex for your recomendations. I choose m0n0 for the
captive (that's why i found it, my first selection was for ipcop) and then i
saw how easy and powerful is. I would like to have per-bandwidth client on
the captive options, but it's a setting i read we'll have in the future. In
the meantime i'll use the wizard and the pipes/queues....
For security reasons, i'll use three network cards, one for wan, one for lan
(just to log-in for administration) and the optional for captive, and then
add some rules to block people to not be able to connect directly on the
administration login, using https for the logins (and i know they can use an
sniffer to see what ip and mac are able to connect for the clients). I'll go
for a radius server in the future (isn't a big hotel anyway).
I didn't know about the ip isolation, so right now, i have everything i need
to start with it.
