We all know that there's a LOT of geeks in the world. And accessing a very secured wi-fi connection doesn't bother them (sucks). Anyway,

I just want to ask if you are familiar with the applications being used in some hotels here in our country where they can restrict the access of the checked-in guests to wifi not until they availed the service for it. One time, I was checked-in to this hotel and as I open my browser, I was directed to a log-in page requiring for a passcode (provided by the hotel management). From there on, you can now access the Internet. Yes, I am connected to their network but cannot access the Internet not until you avail that code from them.

Any idea? Is it something about programming application or is it with the device?

Thanks. :)

This is all part and parcel of the 'deal' you get when you book in to the hotel.
To access the wifi network you will need to have the access code, (either included in your package or added as a plus)

Yes you are connected to their network and the network is asking for the access code.

Overriding is not possible if that is what you are asking

I'm sorry for not specifying my need.

I would like to learn how they did such restriction? Is it about the device or an application?

Thanks. :)

Guest access with multiple SSIDs is usually built into the WiFi router.

Really? So, it is something about the device.
