I connected it to my work's guest wifi and it gets through the authorization and anything connected to it was straight to the internet without issue (my phone anyway).” How exactly are you connecting to your work’s guest wifi without going thro...

Re: Public Wifi Issue

Well I do have a TP Link as a matter of fact, bought it a year ago thinking i’d use it with an Openspot since it needs an ethernet connection. However, the Zumspot has wifi so that’s easier, and a great solution. My thought was to use a 3.5” Nextion touchscreen and try to run a stand alone connectio...

Re: Public Wifi Issue

Re: Public Wifi Issue

Likely so. So either stay connected to your home network or buy a cellphone plan with a hotspot. Forget free wifi. I find it hard to see why it would be that much work to provision Pi-star for that sub set of us that could use it. Im not a programmer but I know it could be done, maybe some hardworki...

Re: Public Wifi Issue

Those are some good suggestions guys, unfortunately I am not sure on how to implement these ideas I am not versed in Linux.

Using Touchscreen for Wifi Access?

Greetings all, Any way to use a keyboard from a Nextion touchscreen to facilitate login to guest or wifi that requires the use of a browser to get a password assigned? More and more such WiFi that provide free Wi-Fi in offices and other public places require this. For those of us who can’t pay for e...

Public Wifi Issue

Greetings all, Many public / guest Wi-Fi connections require a web browser to register for security reasons. Then a temporary password is issued, also a username. The pie star wifi configuration is provisioned only for a password or paraphrase. I have tried entering the temporary password that I acq...
