DD-WRT can do this on a variety of hardware. If you use it on higher end
gear (meaning not a Linksys wrt54gl) you have to buy a license, but it's
pretty cheap. They use Chillispot as the underlying "captive portal".

Play with it on a $50 WRT54GL and see if it meets your needs.

The developers will also do custom coding and branding if you toss a
reasonable fee their way.
