What is Wireless Access Point or HOTSPOT
Wireless Access Point or HOTSPOT is nothing but a Wireless Router that broadcast wireless connection up to certain range.

WiFi Hotspot can be setup in two ways: Public Network and Closed Network.

Public Network is quite open, there is no cap on bandwidth, speed and quota. While in closed network you can cap the bandwidth, speed and quota.

To provide free WiFi internet to your customers, you would need to make your wireless router as free hotspot by installing one software. There are bunch of software available in market to do so. I would recommend HotSpotSystem. You can run this software on Linksys, Buffalo, D-Link, Ubiquiti, Mikrotik routers or on a Linux server.
