Benoit, do you mean layer 2? I'd consider both wifidog and chilli layer
2 solutions as they both require direct (link layer) access to the
subscriber. There is also "sweetspot" which was forked from chilli
(though it doesn't actually use much chilli code anymore) which claims
to provide a layer 3 solution (only tracks IP addresses, not MAC) - but,
I've never actually used it. 

Carlos, can you explain more about your network topology? I had
experimented with some scripts which could force certain hotspot users
(based on IP address in linux routing tables) to use one of several WAN
connections. It works pretty well and can be launched from chilli's
connection up/down scripts such that you can provision users to certain
WAN connections via RADIUS (and, for instance, the Filter-ID
