Had a need for a cheap solution to a club needing a wifi guest login. Used a TP-Link WR841ND $<50 router and DD-WRT.

The info on this site is what I followed  http://blog.danjoannis.com/?p=1362

Seems to work really well.

Maybe useful for someone else.

Well done :-)

Remember to lower the chances of the copyright tribunal knocking on your door, you need to change your guests password regularly.

Yeah, that is a good point, Ray. It is used for conferences that are staged at our club so the password is only given out to the presenters (if they need Internet) who are older responsible people so the risk is fairly minimal.

Little baby Mikrotik would be a good choice too. RB951n is 5-port 100Mbps, wireless n and all the power of RouterOS.

Thanks for the suggestion, Chev. Certainly another cost effective solution.
