Use pfsense (pfsense.org) It has a nice captive portal which allows 
users to authenticate themselves using any http browser, it also acts as 
a wireless access point using a prism-based wireless card and supports 
radius authentication and accounting. most of the usual niceties are 
available, although IPCOP may offer more 3rd party modules.
