Share 1-device paid internet connection (behind captive portal)?


Recommended Posts

I'll be taking a cruise next week. They offer wifi, charged per device. I'd like to use my Pineapple (mark V) to share that single connection to all of my devices.

I assume that getting online will require passing through a captive portal to make payment / accept T&Cs etc. I have in mind that I could use my laptop to make the connection, then change the MAC address on the Pineapple to match that of my Mac, thus it being authorised for the connection and then share it via an AP. But perhaps that won't work if my laptopĀ and Pineapple share the same MAC address (perhaps I need to also then change my laptops MAC address?).

Clearly a bit a newb. Some pointers appreciated :)
