EWRT & captive portal the best way to do this...?

    I would like to be able to broadcast a single web page for passers-by to be able to view. No authentication needed, and most importantly, no Internet access (no gateway). The web page wouuld be stored completely inside the device, and there wouldn't even be net access connected once set up onsite.

    It looks to me like a WRT54G or GS (for the extra memory space) running EWRT with nocat captive portal would work. However:

    For starters, is there already a stand-alone system to do this out there? I've trolled the net to no avail, but that doesn't mean I've looked in the right places. Don't companies do this at conventions? If so, what are they using?

    If the EWRT solution is best, is there a way to set it up so the client sees the splash page using only one router, and nothing else? It seems based on a couple other threads here that it takes 2 routers to get them to view the splash page, or only after they request an outside IP address.

    Does the login request come up before the splash page or on top of it? Can it be disabled?

    Thanks for any help
