Restricting download access on your network

make use of the wrt54gl linux router with openwrt and CoovaChilli, CoovaRadius and a captive portal etc. access point has no encryption, users must use web based login and they have the option to automatically authenticate by mac.Users can be restricted to a preset data limit per 24 hours, eg 150mb, theres a whitelist for freesites which dont count towards the 150mb, eg youtube.150mb is plenty for everyday browsing, if bittorent is used it will blow the 150mb very fast disconnecting the user.The only drawback of this system is if someone decides to sniff wireless packets and clones the mac address of someone else
