Ok, so I posted too quickly :

from http://www.sims.berkeley.edu/~savage/ps/tech-details.html

Router specifications:
        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" ;)
