the WR54G is quite cheap these days. You can install OpenWRT or DD-WRT =
with no fuss and then you have a reasonably decent linux distro.
The law for access to networks states that all users must have their ID =
logged with their MAC address and the times of access. This is so that =
they can bust people who are using proxies to bypass filtering. It is =
illegal to use a proxy to bypass the state internet filtering. The =
registering of ID cards and MAC addresses is to provide a complete log =
to track down people behind NAT.=20
This incredibly silly law was passed around the time that YouTube was =
blocked. I think someone tried to explain how the internet worked to the =
.gov and they came up with this solution.=20
If we set up a network that people can access then we're legally =
required to know who they are and when they accessed the network. We =
could probably get around that to a degree like True has for True WiFi. =
Just require that people register with us via SMS so we have their phone =
number and their identification details. So, probably something as =
simple as a registration form that sends the username + password over =
SMS, or even just a verification code via SMS. Of course, IANAL, so that =
might not be sufficient... and I think a lot of it depends on how the =
authorities feel about the network. If they have the impression it is =
being used for Bad Things (tm), then it probably doesn't matter too much =
what you have in place.=20
