Disable network validation when KT connects to an AP

Hi, today I find out how to disable network validation when connecting to an AP on KT.

On KT, in the file /etc/upstart/wifid.conf:
Code:
...
script
  # If the WIFI_NO_NET_PROBE flag file is present in the userstore,
  # pass the '-n' option to wifid to disable network validation
  # when connecting to an AP.
  [ -e /mnt/us/WIFI_NO_NET_PROBE ] && PARAMS="$PARAMS -n" || true

  exec wifid -f $PARAMS $ARGS
end script
So I just touch a file called WIFI_NO_NET_PROBE on the root of usb drive:
Code:
# touch /mnt/us/WIFI_NO_NET_PROBE
# restart wifid
Now you can connect to any wireless AP, even the one which needs web login through a browser, such as those in the university campus.

Hope this information is helpful for you.

Do not use any extension, just the name exactly as shown, in upper-case letters.
If you're on Windows open a console window (command prompt) and type
c:
then press the ENTER key, then type
cd \
then press the ENTER key, then type
echo.>WIFI_NO_NET_PROBE
then press the ENTER key, then start Explorer (My Computer) and go to the top of drive C: you should find file WIFI_NO_NET_PROBE. Connect your kindle with USB, drag and drop the file to you kindle right at the top. It should be at the same level as your "documents" folder. Disconnect kindle, restart kindle.
If you're on linux... right click the desktop and create a new file named WIFI_NO_NET_PROBE. Then connect your kindle and drag&drop, etc.

WIFI_NO_NET_PROBE

I zipped up a completely EMPTY file like stepk says.
unzip the one attached here and place it on the root of the kindle if making an extensionless file is beyond your capabilities.

Thank you for your help.
I do appreciate it. I rarely ask question, but this one I could not figure out on my own.

Nah, I don't believe you. I will compare their MD5 digest to find out if you're telling the truth.

I am going to stare at it for a few days before I start the work to have that prototype layout generated when a new user registers.

But unless someone bitches loud and long during that time - that's what users are going to get for a profile page.

(And Yes - with the corrected graphics you sent me - the broken banners are place holders in the layout for now.)
