[Mikrotik] Combining 3 APs PPPoE servers

Bite the bullet, build a Radius server now, if only for the accounting
data.  

Plus you'll be able to add paid hot spots with ease.  It's a pain to set
up, but once you have a working radius server you'll wonder how you did
PPPoE without it.

You mean the customer's router/pc through PPPoE - that would be an ideal
world!

We are moving to PowerCode - which I understand uses DHCP static leases
as
"authentication".  I may just manually do this on our current MikroTik
core.

No more then 30 or 40 current PPPoE sessions at this point.
