    Open wireless settings for cafe


    We are starting up a new coffee shop. Management has asked me to setup free open wireless internet.

    Guide me with following questions:

    1) How much connection an access point can handle simultaneously.
    2) Which IP range can give me maximum IP's? I think it can not exceed 254 IP's and in that case after 254 IP's it sill stop issuing IP. Basically I will use wireless router builit DHCP.

    3) How to transfer a user on landing page when he connects to wifi? This landing page will show up privacy instructions and terms of using wifi.

    4) How to expire their lease automatically?

    I don't mean to come across as aloof, but you really need to higher an IT consultant to help you set this up. Having a wireless network setup at your business can open up all kinds of security holes if not done properly; which your business will be accountable for.
