Hotel Wireless Networks----Can You Bypass Log-in Screen?????

Anybody know how to bypass the log-in screen that comes on whenever you
receive a signal from a hotel wireless system?  I've heard that there's a
way to do it with Mozilla.  The log-in screen comes up as soon as you start
internet explorer or Mozilla.  If you can't supply a screen name and
password, you can go no further.

It is easy. Go to the cashier at the hotel and ask to purchase connection
time on their wireless network. In exchange for some money they will give
you the information you need.



Re: Hotel Wireless Networks----Can You Bypass Log-in Screen?????


Thanks so much.  You're so helpful.  I'd never have thought of that.

Can someone tell me how to bypass the lock  on my neighbor's front
door? He left this house right where I can see it. I'm sure he put the
lock on the door by accident since he surely wouldn't mind if I used
his TV for a bit.

Is there a sign on my door "Chastity Belt Keys Made While You Wait"?

That would be illegal and better asked in a warez group.


Re: Hotel Wireless Networks----Can You Bypass Log-in Screen?????


Nothing illegal about receiving ANY sort of RF radio waves--PERIOD.
Annoyance begins when they try to charge for each computer in a room when
two are staying in the room.  But you guys are such a bunch of weenies, I'm
sorry I asked.  Forget it.



Re: Hotel Wireless Networks----Can You Bypass Log-in Screen?????


ummm...you didn't say anything about RECEIVING anything!!! You asked
about HACKING into a site!
What you asked how to do was how to get into a site illegally!
You CAN and apparently DO receive the data just fine, the problem is
you don't want to have to PAY for it!!!!

If one of the computers is wired, the other could use ICS on a WiFi link.
If one is iwirlessly linked to the hotel, the other could link via a second
WiFi or wire using ICS.

Did you ask about using a second computer in the same room?  Maybe there is
a special accomodation for that.

You might select a hotel with Free WiFi.  Pointing out that the double
charge for WiFi makes the other hotel a better deal might make a difference
to the first hotel... might not.

In Denver, I stayed at the Marriott, with free internet, but paid for
breakfast, and at the Embassy Suites, with free breakfast, but paid
internet.  In Sunnyvale, the Maple Tree in has free for both.

I usually use the Choice Hotel chain (Comfort Inn, Quality Inn, etc.).
Most of them offer free high speed internet AND free breakfast.

The Comfort Inn that I just stayed at had cat 5 strung along the outside of
the building, poked into each room, and lying on the floor in a coil of
about 20 feet of cable.  No note, no signs, and I didn't test it.
Breakfast was coffee, milk, juice, and Svenhart's breakfast rolls.

Sure. You can recieve anything you like. Its the 'hacking through
someone's security' part that is probably illegal, don't you think?
Not to mention 'using someone else's equipment to transmit'

How dare they charge you for using their network!  They should give everyone
free access to the equipment they bought and maintain just like I'm sure you
give everyone free access to your equipment that you buy and maintain.  Same
goes for their rooms.  They should be free too!

Re: Hotel Wireless Networks----Can You Bypass Log-in Screen?????


I was thinking last night about this problem and came up with a
possible solution, albiet a cumbersome one....just take along a
wired/wireless router and plug it into the hotel cable and then your 2
computers to it.
When the first computer gets logged in, the second should be able to
piggyback right along for the ride.

Kinda pricey, though, $149.88 at Amazon.
Compared to the "Linksys Compact Wireless-G Broadband Router WRT54GC" for
$63.64 at Amazon,
http://www.linksys.com/products/product.asp?grid=33&prid=679

I noticed that D-Link and Netgear also have "compact" or "traveller"
models.

I also have the Netgear, which is a little smaller and doesn't have an
LAN ethernet port, which is helpful for the kinds of things I do (you
can splice it into an existing feed and add WiFi to it).

It also does dialup, if that matters to anyone.  I've never bothered
with that function of it.

The Linksys has 4 LAN ports, which is interesting.

The Apple one is nice too, thought it's lack of Web-based
configuration is a bit unusual.

I'll never buy another D-Link product...


Re: Hotel Wireless Networks----Can You Bypass Log-in Screen?????


When I cannot find a wireless connection, I'll order the in-room
broadband service and connect a wireless router that I brought along.
It allows me to share the service with my coworkers.  Inevitably, there
are several others connected that benefit from the $15/day service.

Not really - there would still be two obvious computers putting
packets out which is highly visible if you are looking at the IP
and TCP headers, and no I'm _NOT_ referring to the IP addresses.
Such header components as sequence numbers, TTL, source port numbers,
and the various flags are used by O/S fingerprinting tools. See RFC0791
and RFC0793 for details.  It becomes glaringly obvious if you are using
different operating system versions on the two computers. The better
tools can even detect the "Service Pack" level, so having two boxes
running XP, one at SP1, the other at SP2 is a dead giveaway.

[compton ~]$ grep 'Win' 01Jun05 | awk '{ print $7" "$8" "$9" "$10" "
$11" "$12 }' | sort | uniq -c      
    188 - Windows 2000 SP2+, XP SP1
     32 - Windows 2000 SP4, XP SP
     26 - Windows 2000 SP4, XP SP1
      4 - Windows 98 (15)
      3 - Windows NT 4.0 (older)
     85 - Windows XP Pro SP1, 2000

[compton ~]$

The UNIX command is probably meaningless to you, but this sorted through
a fingerprint log file for the first day of June at the local honeypot.
The second line from last - note the (NAT!) - that's a guy who had two
laptops sharing the connection.
