I may have for a few weeks run some open wifi labelled something similar. Not once did any of the neighbours connect to it and accept the official looking splash screen ToS. Disappointing

How exactly do you go about setting up a ToS splash before you are able to use the WiFi?  Is it some kind of open pay wall application on a dedicated firewall?  Or built in to your router?





Sometimes what you don't get is a blessing in disguise!

A lot of actual APs/wireless kit support payment/Splash Screens (ubiquiti/Meru/HP etc)

 

DD-WRT supports it too IIRC.

I've got a Meraki AP which lets you setup a splash page built in with either click-through, force a Facebook like or pay wall. I guess DD-WRT firmware and similar probably have that functionality too

ResponseMediaNZ: Looks like an AOS or STG Command Van

It's a Specialist Search Group (SSG) van. For the benefit of Zeon, if they went past with lights flashing, they were responding to an emergency. They're not an undercover unit and the ladder on the roof is for getting up onto roofs etc., not window dressing as part of any cliche.

wasabi2k: You're trolling right?

On the off chance you aren't - no, the GCSB don't drive round in vans with wireless networks labelled like that.



They are labelled "Telecom Free Wifi"

A couple of weeks ago Vaughan Davis (goat farmer and social media radio host) asked for common wifi router names, he iterated GCSB Van 33 as being the most common, if it wasn't it looks like it is now.

( zoom in on the maps till you can see the router names)  .

nathan: Nothing to hide, nothing to fear

You don't have locks or blinds on your windows, right?


I actually don't have either locks or blinds, one of them isn't even glazed.
