Walled Garden

So I have been scouring the interwebs and I have come across a few programs that would allow us to run a walled garden I believe wifidog is the best choice so far. I've come up with one other program which I'm still reading into. By the way this is Wikipedia's definition of a walled garden. And this is more specific definition of what I plan on doing.

So the way it would work is you would place a machine running Ubuntu with wifidog between the wireless AP and the rest of the network. When a user first opens there web browser and attempts to access a website they will be sent to a splash page that, for our purposes, would ask for a username and password. One more thing, you can use that Linksys router and flash it with wifidog so you don't need to set up a machine but you still need a separate server for authentication.

That's all for now.


  1. Awesome! Just the kind of information I'm looking for.

  2. Very nice post! That's still one of the most useful things I've learned how to do.. Thanks a lot!!!!
