Wireless LANs Video Series
Episode 23, Segment 04 of 06
Sure enough, instead of displaying our usual - "home page", we saw a big screen full of McDonald's logos, ads, and buttons leading to various options oriented toward lovers of their services.
We just wanted to use a regular credit
card to buy some Internet time, so we clicked on a button that was labeled -
"Login or Buy AT&T Wi-Fi".
An intimidating new web page was displayed, which was dominated by a list of
Internet Service Providers, each associated with terms and conditions and with a
demand for a username and password. None of that looked like much fun.
To the right of all of that busy text, we saw a large, red, rectangular patch
with a McDonald's logo and the text - "Wi-Fi Here". It isn't obvious to the
casual observer, but that red patch is actually a - control button - for this
web page, and it leads to the credit-card access that we wanted. We - "left
clicked" - on it.
