If you have a linksys router your can install DD-WRT or if you want to spend money you can buy a product from Linksys called Valet. It is a hotsopt router that you can customize.

As for home and small business, Huawei B970 is the best one. What network do you have, wireless or wire? If you have wire network, do as follows: 1. Just power the B970, 2. plug your Ethernet cable into the B970 internal port; 3. and then use another Ethernet cable to connect the B970 and your pc, one port plug into the B970 external port, the other plug into your pc Ethernet port. 4. And then your other Wi-Fi enabled devices can detect the Wi-Fi signal.
Wireless 3G network: just plug your 3G card into the Huawei B970, then open the device, power on. Then you computers can detect the WiFi signal.
Hope this helps!

hmm nice answers but no need for firmware changes on ANY router. A free wireless kiosk like what you see at McDonalds, or Hotels have the access points (wireless router) setup as open with no encryption, this in itself is a big security risk as others on the same wifi connection are in the open!
However what the kisok does is have a proxy connection from the access point(s) that intercepts the connection and redirects the connection to a login page , or page that makes you agree to the terms of service before you can actually access the internet. This is great for everyone but the underlining lack of wireless security is a risk I would not suggest you take.
making it easy to access is one thing but no security means you open the door for more issues and infact mmost corporations would not all such access to their network in the open.

Can't you just make the password for encryption the name of the business or your phone number? I would advise against an open wifi after the current drama with Google sniffing open wifi networks.
