Will what i said on post 43 not work?

Yes, that should work. Try it.
Just a little tip for those of you setting up pfsense, once youv'e got it installed stay on the pfsense console screen it'll ask you to setup your interfaces - they may have strange names like rl0 or em1 - if you look on the screen though it'll show you which one is which so just select which ones you want to be your LAN,WAN or OPT interfaces, once it's done set an IP (either static or DHCP) and login to the web interfaces on a PC just like a normal router.
I wouldn't worry too much about getting the interfaces set-up correctly the first time as you can edit them in the web interface anyway, just aslong as you can get to the web interface via the LAN interface.
The username will be Admin, the password will be pfsense.
Below is any image similar to the screens you will see about setting up interfaces the first time.

Thanks, do i use pfsense with a single nic or 2 please?

Add as many as you like, I usually add 3, WAN LAN and OPT. You can remove / add more if need be and use the web GUI to assign interfaces.

how are you going to force teh clients to hit the captive portal?

All you need to do is setup the VLANS on the LAN interface, go into captive portal and set it to listen on the LAN. That should work.
