How to make an wireless LAN for multiple users

by shadow_phoenix_pt / July 23, 2008 9:05 PM PDT


Let me explain the situation. I am trying to create a wireless network for a small building where several non related ppl live. The owner of the building wants to provide internet to all the tenants but whants to garantee that there is only one account per person. I suggested mac address filtering, but since the tenants change very frequently, it is not feasable.

I have an N 300Mb D-link router and a cheap computer with windows server 2008 to use as a server. I configured the computer and I have two connections, one connecting to a small wired Lan (wich provides the internet ) and another to wireless router (wich works fine). I can get Internet in my laptop trough wireless if I bridge the two connections I spoke about in Windows server, but I see no way to provide the user control that my friend requires.

So does anyone has any idea of how to go around this? I have been tinkering with the evaluation version of wingate, without success. Also, the solution must be simple to maintain, since I don't want to called upon every time a new user needs to be added.

Thank you for your time.

The Wifigator software is now obsolete. It has been replaced by Chilliwave. They are scheduled to stop selling the Billing software so you may want to check it out.

Wrong! Wifigator is not obsolete!
It hasn't be replace by Cilliwave.
Chilliwave is a stripped pack containing a bad copy of Wifigator and openmesh dashboard stollen code.

If you are looking for Wifigator go to the Wifigator owner website (

Do not read blindly Chuck Dejarnett Announcement. This guys is not anymore WFG team member. Happy

Chilliwave is not 802.11N compliant! and as Wifi adhoc type do not support 802.11N, Chlliwave will never manage a Real 300 mbps (nodes to nodes) bandwidth network kind.

Wifigator is working on a 802.11N network dashboard(without stoling codes from competitors) in order to stay at high level technology. It will be released soon keep an eye at Wink

As to the adhoc mode, that one is well discussed. It is what it is.

Since my name has been brought up here, I will respond to this personally.. This yzy-oui-fi is Francois Morize, who is a hacker in France that assisted one of my php programmers, Loren Wolsiffer, in stealing the domain name and server code for Wifi Gator and now they are defrauding the public into thinking they own my business..

If you google my name, "Chuck DeJarnett Wifi Gator", you will see that I am the one who developed the entire wifi gator system and it belongs to my company Oregon MicroScience Corp... period..

After Loren and Francois here pulled their scam on all of you, I immediately dumped the entire wifigator name and started a new company, rebuilt everything from the ground up, and completely obsoleted the wifi gator program.. Dumped it like a hot potato...

If you want to do business with some hackers in France, and do not mind dealing with dishonest people, then Wifi Gator might be for you.. You can tell by his writing above that he has about a 3rd grade education, which should be your first clue.

I have built the next generation of wifi billing software and taken a quantum leap ahead of what these people are capable of, in order to put as much distance between them and myself and moved on.. The new system is called "Chilliwave" as mentioned above..

Google my name and you will find that in the wifi billing business, all roads lead to Chuck DeJarnett.. I have been developing this system since wifi first came out over seven years ago.. Honesty, integrity, and a system that really works are what me to where I am today, and I look forward to assisting any of you who are serious about your wireless networking business with getting it up and running, or migrating you over from these other sham software packages, all of which are some derivative my previous works in one form or another..

For more information on the Chilliwave Wifi Hotspot Billing Software, feel free to contact me at

I will look forward to working with you as you go forward with your wireless networking business..
