    Default access points that redirects you to a login page...

    I posted this in another forum and they said it was the wrong place, but no one told me where the right place was.

    I'm not trying to gain access illegally, I already paid (actually I'm not even at the hotel anymore) but then I booted in backtrack to see if there was anything I could do to get past it.

    I was trying to figure out a way that I'd be able to pass the login to get internet access, but I didn't know what program to use or how to do it.

    Is there even a way to pass those authentication pages? I can connect to the AP and sniff packets, but I didn't find anything interesting or anythign I can do anything with (that I know of), so is it even possible to pass those to get internet?

    Like I said, I'm not trying to do anything illegal (and as I said I already paid to get access) but I was wondering if it was even possible.

    Also, if it's possible, is there a way I can set my own router to do this or something similar so I can try it on my own router? I don't want to do it on one that's not mine (and like I said before, there aren't any near me at home anyway)

    Why do you think asking the same question will yield different results? You were already told what to search for.

    Even if you already paid for access, it is still illegal to try to bypass the access control measures. Besides, how long was the access you paid for? Because unless you have a subscription, the 24 hours are certainly up. You cannot buy a DVD and break its encryption in order to extract its contents (at least in the US), same applies here. You're treading on shaky ground.

    Your other thread was not closed for posting in the wrong place, it was closed because you're asking how to bypass a legitimate security feature. This is a violation of two of our forum guidelines, which you apparently have not already read:

    Like I said in that thread:
    What you're talking about is called a captive portal. The way you "get past" this page is to register and pay the fee. Beyond that, you'll have to figure out for yourself.
    If you're smart, you'd be happy that I've given you plenty of information for you to go to Google and figure out what to do next.

    This thread is going nowhere.
