 Wireless HotSpot HowTo

This tutorial deals with setting up a WLAN HotSpot on a Linksys WRT54GS router using OpenWrt, ChilliSpot, and FreeRadius.

OpenWrt is a Linux distribution for Linksys WRT54G. It provides minimal firmware with add-on packages. Its allows the customization with a broad range of software packages available for it. We will be using OpenWrt as a replacement to the original Linksys firmware that comes pre-installed with the router.

ChilliSpot is a wireless LAN access controller. It is used for authenticating users of the wireless LAN. It supports web based login for hotspots.
