GET ROUTER, HACK  = WIFI TAGGING

 

The Basics:

1) Get a TP-Link WR741ND router (around $10-20)

2) Download the wifitagger firmware

3) follow the README

4) drop modem in public

5) connect to “Free Public WifiTagger”, instant unlimited tagging of networks within range, 100% satisfaction guaranteed!!

 

 

WifiTagger is a router which is enabled to tag wifi networks. Upon selecting “Free Public WifiTagger” as your network, you can tag the wifi spectrum via the WifiTaggers open UI. It can broadcast a tag up to four lines of 32 characters.  Tags will be viewable within the list of wifi networks. It allows anyone with a wifi enabled device the ability to tag digital space.

Too lazy to make one? You can check out FATS’s very own WifiTaggers tagging all over Chelsea as of November 5th and at FAT GOLD.

    You can do this already without a router – just use your airport and create a new network.. done.

    Nice Hack !

    Does the hack work with other routers too or do i need a P-Link WR741ND ?

  4. it should work with others but havent officially tested them, check out the Openwrt documentation for supported routers or just flash it and see how it runs

    Finally got a battery powered router … TL- MR 3040 … openwrt did his job … but running setup.sh made problems :

    he authenticity of host ‘192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1)’ can’t be established.
    RSA key fingerprint is 92:b5:c2:ab:75:32:d7:21:60:63:0c:be:f4:05:c1:f6.
    Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? no

    Hello Addie,

    we got the tp-link 3040 running with all packages . we had to install them manually, as our version is trunk … but there are all on the router now and running.

    The web interface is running too , but the script is not working. After pressing tag , nothing happens … hmmm ,
    any idea? cheers from austria
