I have just finished writing a wireless authentication gateway written entirely in PHP that interfaces with iptables. This allows redirects of unauthenticated clients to the login page and then authenticates them based on various aspects of their connection.

I've also contemplated a round-robin server load balancing setup (but since we can only afford one web server at the moment I dropped it )
