Image Number 2 for United States Patent #8130734.

Methods, systems, and computer program products for managing access to a wireless local area network are provided. A method includes establishing a communication between a first and second software intelligent agent via the wireless local area network. The first software intelligent agent is internal to the wireless local area network and the second software intelligent agent is associated with a cognitive radio-enabled communications device that is external to the wireless local area network. The method also includes retrieving user-configured settings for designating terms of use of the wireless local area network. The user-configured settings are established by, and retrieved via, the first software intelligent agent. The method further includes presenting the terms of use to the second software intelligent agent and providing the cognitive radio-enabled communications device with access to the wireless local area network, subject to the user-configured settings, upon acceptance of the terms of use by the second software intelligent agent.
