Mobile friendly networks


Recommended Posts

Ok. So I setup the mk4, fresh from the factory (few weeks ago). Added a usb wireless, mk4 can hit the internet through it. Devices snatched up by Karma. Life is pretty grand.

I take the device to a location that only allows mobile devices to connect to the internet (unauthorized). If you have a laptop you have a sign-in screen to connect.

The device is connecting to that network fine just not able to sign-in.

My question is if there is a way to make the network (ResNet??) believe that the device connecting is a mobile device and NOT a USB wireless? Make sense?

It took a lot for me to figure out the issue. I finally tried to get an internet address from the 42.1 page and it gave this html code which let me to the question. I couldn't find any Google searches that helped. And thought hmm, someone may know something up in here.

Code from the page:
