Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
OK, so some of you know that I am the landlord of an apartment complex. Now this includes the internets access provided to them via wifi access. Case in point is I don't want any one in the net to hog the bandwidth torrenting stuff or w/e. Also, I don't live in the property nor have a staff or office where I can setup a PC! The router is on a locked box in the common areas with an external power supply reset button so tenants can reset them themselves in case of net hiccups
This would involve setting caps on wifi connections plus Logging to check who is doing what
What is the best way to do this?
On site IP: Dynamic
Router: wrt54g, although it will be upgraded soon to accommodate the new wifi standards
Remote Access IP: Dynamic IP
Budget: $100 or less
I was thinking of using something like no-ip.org ($9.95/year) to activate the "remote management limited to IP" on the router
The problem is getting the IP of the rental property since it's also dynamic. Setting a POP3 or Apache just to relay the IP seems like a good idea, but how would I do this without setting a machine on site or doing so with a minimal cost?
