Hi,

I'm currently attending a college whose wifi network forces you to type in your name and password before you can log on. It'll bring up a seperate page (sometimes several minutes after connecting) where I can type in this information. This wouldn't be a problem, but my iPhone disconnects from it everytime I put it to sleep, forcing me to reconnect and retype my information. I don't have a data plan so any internet I use at school must go through the school's wifi. My question is: is there any app that will allow me to enter my information once and automatically connect for me? It would be really helpful on a day to day basis.

Btw my phone is jailbroken
Thanks guys!

there wont be a way to bypass what i believe is a radius server. The only thing that might work is somehow keeping your wifi constantly connected even when it goes to sleep, but i think that will kill your battery.

Yeah I tried an app from cydia that kept my wifi constantly on (and while it was only a trial) it quickly drained the battery, so that's not really a feasible option.

So it's impossible to bypass a radius server? I was hoping someone knew of a tool that would just automatically input my info so that the login screen doesn't even have to show.

Thanks for the quick response!

Atomic browser has the ability to fill in forms automatically now. Not even a JB app. You will have to load the page and hit submit though.

I found out that the school's Internet authentication program is powered by BlueSocket. They apparently have an iPhone app out that will allow me to fill in my information once and automatically sign in. Too bad it's not available in the Canadian AppStore :(

Thanks for all the suggestions

Since your iPhone is jailbroken, it should be allowed to run improperly signed code so you could get someone to download the BlueSocket app for you to their account and send you the .ipa

I searched in the US AppStore for BlueSocket and Blue Socket. No hits.

Thanks! We've just installed the Cisco Hoteling software at work (same function the OP is dealing with) and are having the same problem with iPhones and iPads. Too bad there isn't a similar solution for a Cisco environment.

I have the same problem at my school. It's not such a problem with my iPhone, the login always pops up quickly but on my iPad it sometimes either doesn't pop up or doesn't load.

I've yet to find any way around it. Be glad it works at all though, when I got my first iPhone their Wi-Fi that worked like that didn't even support iPhones.
