Hy all,

i want to set up an access point to provide internet access in a sailing
club.
I want to provide the service with no charge for affiliates but i want:

1) provide access only to authorized users with a password (WEP?) authorized
user are not only Affiliates but also the team that use the club rooms for
tha many regatas that we organize.
2) track the user trafic to prevent illegal use of the internet.

there's someone that could help me?

Max

Sounds like you need a consultant to advise you on the proper wireless
network device to use. An off-the-shelf wireless router isn't going to
provide the kind of services you need.

If you have a domain controller and a RADIUS server, then you could provide
per user authentication. However without a domain, everyone accessing
through WEP or WPA/WPA2 for that matter uses an identical password/pre
shared key for authentication. Anyone who knows the key and is within range
can access the network and without more, there is no way to identify them.
See:

You could use MAC address filtering - but you need to know everyone's MAC;
or possibly, you could use a full featured proxy server such as ISA to to
force user authentication for Internet access. Try posting your question
