OK, I own [url removed, login to view], we are a HotSpot Authentication & Billing service for Wireless ISP's and HotSpot Operators.
I need a small wireless access point designed/developed where when you plug the AP into a switch, it pulls an IP via DHCP and his the internet, based upon the MAC address, the AP calls home to the [url removed, login to view] server and pulls down a config. to program itself. I need it to perform the function or pushing people to a captive portal page & using radius for authentication.
I don't want to take an off the shelf product and convert it, flash the software. I want my own AP...I want to take this product, patent it, mass manufacture it and give it away to people around the world for FREE.
So you must have the skills necessary to build this from the ground up. Sure you can take pieces and parts to build an AP...but at the end of the day it will need to be mass produced, so please keep this in mind.
