    Im trying to start a small WISP in my area and i am trying to think of a way to keep people from sharing one key to get online, and to stop people from still accessing the internet if they dont pay or cancel there service.... so can i set up where i can enter like 20 network keys that can all be accessed or a way to get people connected with one key and not allow others to connect?

    Sharing the same key, is the only one of sharing a secure-wireless network. Or, if security is needed, you should use vpn-clients and a vpn-server and leave the wireless network unsecure. (see Radius security)

    Blocking people can be done by ip adress (use static dhcp for ALL users) or by use of MAC adress.

    Thanks for the good advice, on the IP Filter, is there a way to add more then just 6 seperate allowed ip's?

    Theres lots of ways to do this it just depends on how involved you want to get. If you want to just use what you have then ip yes (but its easy to get around), mac is better but thats not hard to get around if you know a mac that is allowed. The best way but a little more involved is using a server based authentication, radius is good. Theres also one i dont remember what the name is but it acts just like radius. Basically if you are going to off load authentication and authroization to a server, you will have plenty of available options.
