    Alright so the wireless internet at my school requires you to login through a web browser. Doing so only gives you access to the internet through your browser of course. I was wondering if there is a way to "bridge" that connection to other programs like WoW or Mail or anything else? Would help kill time between class! Thanks.

    AFAIK after you log in with these systems, you should be able to access the internet with other applications. Of course, they probably have certain ports closed off for security reasons so you might not be able to play WoW. Hope that helps.
