OESF Portables Forum _ Zaurus - pdaXrom _ Wireless Network With Browser Login

Posted by: ckblackm Oct 23 2010, 02:43 PM

Is there any secret for getting logged in at locations that require you to login via browser before it gives you
an ip address?

For example, at McDonalds, it requires you do the following:

Connecting is simple: When in the McDonald’s restaurant, just turn on your computer (or PDA), select “Wayport_Access” from the available wireless networks and open the Internet browser. You will be pointed to the McDonald’s splash page where you can select the CONNECT button.

iwconfig shows it connects to Wayport_Access, but I can't get it to give an ipaddress.

Any ideas?

thanks,
Christopher.

A lot depends on which device you have. If you are using TOSA, you will most likely need to run the dhcp client manually. Authentication does not prevent the router from assigning you an IP address, but the device has to request it to be assigned (ei you have to run dhclient, or what ever it's called).
