    Hello,
    amazon-web-services aws-iot
    I have an AWS IOT button that i’m trying to connect to the open wifi at my office. The problem is, our open “no-auth” wifi has one of those “terms of use” buttons you have to click in a browser before you are connected. Can the AWS IOT button get passed that?

    Seems like it only works on wifi that is locked down vie SSA.

    Anyone know a workaround?

    Hi,
    discover the device’s mac address

    remove the device’s power source

    configure your laptop’s wifi card to override its built-in MAC address and instead assume the IoT device’s MAC address

    sign on to the wireless network and accept terms with your laptop, spoofing the device’s hardware address

    return the laptop to normal configuration

    power up the IoT device

    PROFIT! 🙂 …at least until the portal’s login timeout window expires.
