    Cool hack bt openzone


    just bought a mini laptop running linux "easypeasy". When I try to get online only opens a BTopenzone page that asks me to pay to get online. Is there a hack I can use to get online without having to pay BT.

    There may be, there may be not.
    But in any case: You wont get that kind of information here.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    Yes, you could get yourself a 3G dongle and use the mobile phone network. You could also hang around near to hotels and cafes that offer free wifi access.

    I don't recommend attempting to circumvent any paywall that BT places over its services. But some mobile phone operators and some ISPs can provide a service which includes access to BT Openzone.

    EasyPeasy can run any browser, Firefox, opera, etc. If you have wifi in your office and home, you can connect to it with one of them. If you are looking for phone/data service outside of your wireless coverage at home and office, then you will have to pay for one or hang out in hotspots.

    Once your browser opens to that page, are you unable to navigate to any other website?
    If so, is that the only network that is currently available to you?
