Resolved Question

Accomodation Wi-Fi

Hi, the accomodation I live in has good Wi-Fi speeds and coverage (500mbps up and down) however every time you reconnect to the Wi-Fi it requires you to re-enter your username and password to use the network.
I was wondering if there was any way of 'automating' this process?
Or potentially using my own access point to re broadcast the network?

Thanks for your help, Alfie

They remember such but if the portal DEMANDS a web login then no, this is not a WiFi password but a portal authentication system.

As to the second question the AP would have to be almost a full fledged PC or such with some custom programming (I don't supply this, only note it) to do the log in.

Again, since it's not a WiFi password system you need to talk to the provider about the annoying login system.

PS. Forgot my favorite automation tool for this.

It's called AUTOIT and there are forums about its use and programming. It's free too.

as someone with minimal coding experience, could you perhaps point me in the direction of setting something like this up ?
thanks

I have to send you to the AUTOIT forums. It's a great system and many with minimal to no coding experience have been able to automate a lot of things just like what you are asking.
