Hi andya,

Hotspot is a pretty general term really. Are you looking for an AP that does everything (captive portal, billing, user signup, etc.)? Or do you have a server to do these things already and just need an AP with captive portal that is compatible?

APs are just APs, nothing more. Since you mention m0n0wall and pfsense, both of those to hotspot and don't require any 3rd party stuff loaded onto APs.

I have a dozen or so APs and my hotspot is managed with m0n0wall.

Take a look at Ubiquiti uniFi for a complete system.

I was look for more controller access and the ability to disable users pay will done before hand so no bill etc sign up they will be made and give to the user but it be nice options was they

I hope for more inter grated solutions with out a server but could have small server if needed

I was look at »www.meraki.com Winch seem to be pretty well setup planed I just not sure how feel about whole Cloud control I would preferred to keep it local

Avoid Meraki, they will get you on their portal charges. they are NOT cheap when it comes to using their dashboard.
