If you are lucky your router is supported by the DD-WRT or Tomato
firmware upgrade. With either of them them you should be able to set up
a "cafe" style access system with out a password being needed.

You can set it up to present a screen with your house rules that the
user has to click on and accept before they are allowed onto the internet.

Here is a link describing the DD-WRT firmware and Cafe access.

If your present router is not supported a suitable replacement can be
found at many places like Ebay, Tigerdirect.com, and many other places.
