2) How could I make a Wi-fi hotspot, but when someone opened their browser to a HTTP address, maybe even FTP or any type of address it would redirect them to a webpage that is hosted through my computer.(Meaning they can't get to the internet inless I allow it or do the below)

3) How could I make it where people have to log in, in order to get access to the wi-fi internet? Like no matter what they tried, they just couldn't get to the internet because all the ports would be blocked off from internet connectivity except only a few which required a login. But they could still access the HTTP/FTP index that allowed them to login and view the site. Sort of like how some wi-fi cafes work...Except with more exceptions I suppose.

New question, didn't want to start a new thread...
What is the best wireless router out there? What is the best wireless adapater that has a little plug in thing for a antena?
Are the USB wireless G devices just as good as a PCMCIA one?

How about you start using your edit button for these little revisions Trident. That's what it's there for. /wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' />

If the people that you want to allow are always the same, you can setup your wifi routeur to filter MAC addresses, and you add to the allow list only the ones you want.
Easier than setting up your login system.
Be sure the routeur has this option when you buy it

That is easyly hackable.... I'm talking a completly open wi-fi spot, but only a certain IP(192.168.0.2, my computer) could only edit the settings of the router. But everyone could get access to the router..The internet also if they have a login, also this defently wouldn't be just the same people...Because it is open and others might want to see what it has aviable.

IP filtering is far more hackable than mac AFAIK
