How to force guest network to authenticate

Greetings - using ap1230 series. I have several vlans. one vlan that goes right to our company network for RF guns using WPA that connects to our enterprise. Another vlan I have is DSL and is VLANNED accordingly which I allow an open means of wireless. I want to be able to provide soem password of sorts and provided it only to a few users so when they conenct to that network a prompt or some means of authentication is presented to the user trying to use it. Not only that I would need to change this password every now and then so it keeps the users honest. any hints or tips?

Perhaps I should of mentioned this.

How can i do it with spending almost next to nothing.:)

Anyhow There is a ACS appliance in the enterprise but not at my location (at about 100 miles away) we are connected via MPLS. But I know very little about the ACS.

Are you using controller based or the autonomous ones. If you have controllers, then its really easy. Just set the security policy on that WLAN to web-auth. Then set up the web login page and create accounts via the WLC.

Look at ZoneCD and other free software out there. These can do what you want to do.... of course you would need to install then on a machine of some sort.
