What is UseMyNet?
UseMyNet is software that is loaded onto a WiFi router turning the network into a managed public WiFi Hot Spot to provide guest wi-fi or customer internet access. It presents a guest with a business branded "landing page" before allowing general access to the internet. Depending upon the chosen set-up, users must either enter a unique code, click an "I agree" button or pay using an optional online payment method using a credit card or PayPal account.
How is it supplied?
UseMyNet offer both pre-congured routers shipped out "ready to go" or immediate firmware downloads for easy self-installation onto a common TP-Link or LinkSys WiFi router. For more sophisicated requirements it is also available as a VirtualBox® package to run on a PC or Server connected to an existing or proposed WiFi network.
Who uses it?
Coffee Shops, Small Hotels, BBs, Cafes, Pubs and Bars, Camp Sites, Garage Service Centers, Clinical out-patient services and so forth. The basic system can be used at any internet connected location where customer WiFi access is required within the normal coverage range of a standard WiFi router. System coverage can be extended with additional hardware.

|Keep track of the number of computers connected and the amount of traffic consumed by them (in megabytes).
|Allow and control "Free" access via an "I Agree" login button alone.|
A "White" ticket login code and limits can also be set for use by multple users.
