Can I automate the login to a hotspot I am subscribed to?

    I have a hotspot subscription that requires validation with uid/pwd. I can access the hotspot from 1 corner of my house but not throughout the rest of the house. Can I use a DD-WRT enabled access point setup in the corner of the house to login to the hotspot and repeat the signal so that I can pick it up in the rest of the house?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I would work with my ISP to get special setup on their side instead of hacking around too much, if you don't have to.

    Example. I use ChilliSpot in my WISP. Ordinary users get prompted for user and pass. However I can just as easily set it to do MAC authentication for specific customers, so those MAC addresses get connected automatically.

    that's a good suggestions, thanks. Anyone else have any other suggestions if the ISP doesn't cooperate?

    MAC spoofing is very easy. You should better code something to login automaticaly.
