Ok, so I posted too quickly :
software: our customized router software "lives" on the router.
Combined with a Linux distribution, it replaces the device's
factory-installed software. The software is based on -- and built from
-- the open-source Wifi Dog captive portal software. (Captive portal
software is often used to control access to a wi-fi access point -- for
instance, to require people to enter a username and password, or to
purchase access time, before they can get an Internet connection.)
Thanks to the folks at Wifi Dog for their great work which provided us a
strong foundation to build upon.
I was searching for "wifidog", when I should have searched for "wifi
dog" I guess - or just "dog" ;)
