This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Well you have to configure the router to redirect user on first request to your "welcome screen". This welcome screen ought to be a html document either on local server or some www page on a server/hosting you own.

That's that ;] For any precise information you would probably have to provide name of your router and what kind of software you have on it... Without that its hard to give any specific solution.

I recomend going to community groups of that particular router. They might give you better info...! – Marek Mollin Dec 1 '09 at 17:12

If I'm not mistaken, most hotspot (wireless) providers accomplish this via WPAD. I think that's the gist of what Marek is suggesting, but your wireless AP\Router needs to support it.
