Tasker help

City of Burbank has free wi-fi in the downtown area. Our Vons also has free wi-fi. But I have to confirm every time I access it even though I have accessed it a thousand times.

Can someone give me a step-by-step instruction on automating the confirmation?

Well you could always do an ssh tunnel over sctp and potentially bypass it entirely.

There are a number of apps that can do this. Tasker would be a more difficult option. If the operators of the captive portal wanted to, they could make automatic attempts to get past the portal difficult by requiring a random string is submitted in a hidden field.

It's been a while since I played with Tasker and I thought this would be a good opportunity but perhaps not laugh out loud
