Can someone tell me if there is a manual or video available for the following:

* We want to create a wifi network where there is a SSID that has a key that is the same for everyone (i.e. ssid guest with key guest)

* When someone is connected to that network and they open their internet browser they should see a webportal asking them for their private key (the key a visitor can get at reception)

* Once the key is filled in and correct they have internet access. Without a correct key, no internet.

Thanks in advance!

ID Manager is pretty inexpensive and does solve the overall guest issue, however if you just want a PSK for guests you can just set up a second SSID. The next question, is what do you want to do with the traffic from that SSID. The simplest solution is to drop it into a VLAN and have it go to the internet, but we also can apply firewalls as Bradley said, or tunnel traffic to a device in the DMZ
