IPCop is actually pretty good for this as it uses one of it's interfaces 
for wireless access based on granting each node specific access by MAC, 
but it can be any network node, it doesn't have to be a wireless device.

All of our public workstations are on this interface so the machines are 
verified at the proxy.  Now I just need to get the RADIUS piece in place 
to validate the users.  IPCop can require RADIUS authentication on top 
of the MAC filter.   It sounds good on paper, I just need to find the 
easiest way possible for my users to deal with the RADIUS piece of the
