How do I setup LAN network to redirect all internet requests?

I recently setup a wireless/wired network for a hotel to be used by about 75 guests. It was simply a matter of daisy chaining a few Netgear switches (JFS516) from the ISP's DSL modem/router and then connecting a few Netgear Access points (WG602) with alternating channels on each floor (one per floor). DHCP is controlled by the router. Everything worked great. However, now the hotel has requested that the network be upgraded to include a page that intercepts all internet requests and I'm looking for tips on how to do that? [more inside]
