Bounty for Hotspot setup



  • I need your help PLEASE! I'm a s soldier in AFG and am trying to set up a wifi network for myself and guys in my unit.

    So this is what I need…

    I found a satellite service that will give us 120 GB a month then it cuts us off but does allow unlimited use between 1 to 6 am. There are 10 of us (all will need their own user names and password) and some have cellphones, ipads, and laptops to connect. I need to share the 120 GB a month equally users and access to all devices, roughly assign everyone account/ user name for about 4.4 GB a week or 650mb a day and unlimited GB's between 1 and 6 am. Can pfSense, DD-WRT, tomato, gateway service, or a network software support this setup?

    They would all be wireless and I will need 3 to 4 routers one being the main and the others bridge/repeaters. (was thinking about three ASUS RT-N66U but I will order which is best for setup)

    This is the main concern but these are other services we would like.
    *QoS
    *vpn
    *share drive support (we have a 3TB drive)
    *maybe some type of ticket option. ( the ISP will sell us 1/GB for $13 so some of my guys my want to take advantage of that. It does not need to have a pay site but I would need away of giving them access to the 1/GB)

    Bounty for setting up the routers/hotspot is $100 (+$50 if done by Oct 01, 2012) for a simple tutorial to setup and  maintain the hotspot after completion. I'm good with computers (windows) but not networking.

    Thank you for your help!!!!



  • i dont think its possible to set data transfer limits in pfsense

    You could always use the traffic shaping limiter and a calculator to work out what bandwidth you should give people so that they would reach that bandwidth limit after the set period of time if downloading constantly?

    Not ideal, I grant you…
