Anyone have any recommendations for BCPs or software suggestions on

MAAWG BCPs on walled gardens (probably coming soon if not already out

doing this on a large scale.
As these coffee shop APs are usually running off a standard DSL line -
its not muni wifi as such - a walled garden should nail abuse very

shop owner .. or he'll find that a NAT'ted IP with multiple infected
laptops coming and going out of it might be in and out of a walled
garden all the time.
There's some vendors who concentrate on walled garden stuff - Perftech
(www.perftech.com) for example. Arbor and Sandvine too have kit that
can be used for this, I believe .. of course, at the edge of an ISP's
