>It's strange--just like the title says, hotel Wi-fi and a lot of private business wi-fi needs a browser to activate your internet connection, with a password, but when you flush the cache and close the browser, when you reopen the browser it often still works to give you internet. Somehow there's a hidden cookie that is not erased.
>Anybody know how hotel or private wifi works? Some sort of a program that's become popular seems to me, as I don't recall this from years ago.
