      I agree with Zachery, the wireless is a bad idea. Too much latency. I'd go with gigabit or at least 100mbit copper over even 802.11g. You don't have to worry as much about the security issue and you don't have to worry about interference/signal problems.

        Please explain

        As for wireless, I want to go for wireless to attract laptop users too. The way I'm thinking of doing it is maybe to provide a username/password to be able to use the wireless. Whenver someone pays, they get an hour. Pay for 3 hours, then your username/password works for 3 hours

        As for money, I'm set to rob a ban.... err.... don't worry about it!

            Of course... for laptop users they would need a username/password..... for users going on our desktops they just need to pay beforehand

            I'm still trying to think of a good way to be able to figure out who has paid for how many hours. If it gets popular and get hundreds of people, it'll be hard to track by eyesight and memory alone

              I was joking MGM but I would be happy to help you with the online aspect of your venture shoudl you need Gfx work etc , Maybe some branding logos etc and intranet stuff


              As for folk logged on?

              Why not run a small app that generates a password based on date , it could then store the log in out times via a db. When someone goes to log in they then have to key in a number , the db then looks for this and checks the dates and lgs them in etc...

              It would be very easy for a good C++ programmer or other windows code monkey

              Just a basic idea youd need soem help in gettin a coder etc

              But this way you can also store purchase info such as apps to be allowed permission to run etc via a db and extra fields associated with the login number
