Without being familiar with Alvarion gear, I'd guess this will be tough.
Are you wanting to provide public or private IP space via dhcp?  If it's
private, you could always build a vlan from your core router out to each
subscriber.  I am fairly certain that is something that Alvarion does.
This would be the only idea I have.

Not sure why PPPoE is "out".  It would be the best option if you don't
want to collect MAC addresses.

Why would you NOT be willing to collect MAC addresses?  It is not that
difficult to do, unless you're looking at some type of hotspot where you
won't know the customers who are connecting.
