    I don't know if it's possible, today when I went to McDonald's and tried to connect to the wifi it then prompted me with the sign in web browser to sign into the network. Wouldn't that technically allow viewing sites if there's a Sign-in network? I've never made one myself.

    I tried to look into it on these forums but I didn't really find anything.. unless I missed it.

    You didn't search hard enough. That's the main entry for pegaswitch. You obviously didn't search hard enough. Multiple threads have been created in the past couple hours with these dumb questions that are already well known.

    Sorry >.< I heard the name but didn't know what it was. I just got a switch about a week ago. My bad.

    Sorry, going back and reading it came across WAY more aggressively than I intended. I'll try to be more careful with how I write next time.

    Even better use "site:gbatemp.net". It tells Google to only pull searches from gbatemp.net. Avoids results from news sources that mention gbatemp.
    I do that instead of using the forum search in the site, because the built in search sucks.

    Oh yeah, haha. I stopped using that feature some time ago because it broke for some time for whatever reason.
