How connections to my wireless network go to a webpage login form? Airport/Hotel


How can I get connections to my wireless network go to a webpage login form?

Like they have at Airports and Hotel's, where you can only get to the page to buy, or log in for internet service, and then after you have logged in you can view any site.

TIA

It's called a "Captive Portal", and it involves DNS (e.g. bind), a web server (e.g. Apache) and your router. Here are a couple of links:
