There are several apps for that available. I personally used WiFi Web Login in the past, and even bought the pro key for this app. It works pretty well: You have to once record your captive login (i.e. you start the app, say to add a new "portal", and then manually start your login procedure from within the app. Once done, this is recorded as macro; as soon ...

Hopefully this isn't too late to be useful; but I have a similar requirement due to having more than one AP at home (including testing some, my primary connection, and a segregated work LAN yadda yadda...) One of the issues in this question, is that there's no mention of your Distro, wireless utilities used, method for configuring your known networks etc. ...

Based on Hueys answer, here's an approach easier to use for you – and coming closer to what you're after. There's an app called Ping & DNS offering several network tools which, on a ping, even can display a graphical analysis: Ping & DNS (source: Google Play; click images for larger variants) I have not used this app myself, so I cannot give any ...

Android provides the native ability to create a WiFi hotspot. On my phone, running 4.4.2, it's under "Mobile Hotspot". Mobile Hotspot allows you to define the mac address of the "allowed devices" that can connect to the hotspot. To simplify things, there's also a one touch widget in the app store that will allow the enabling/disabling of the hotspot. The ...

To automate all things on my Droids, I use Tasker1. Like Steve with IFTTT, I didn't check with your specific situation – but given the fact that Tasker is the most powerful automation tool available for Android, I trust it to be capable of this. Tasker works with so-called "profiles", consisting of a (number of) "conditions", which you can assign "tasks" to. ...

Whenever it comes to automation, first thing coming to mind is Tasker: over at Android.SE we sometimes think this app is the answer to every second question. I'm a Tasker user myself, so I can say from my own experience it's a very powerful tool. I'm not using it for anything like what you've defined, but from the features available I know it's capable of ...

There are a number of companies that exist in many parts of the world that have a promise of "Free WiFi" when you are in our store/whatever. Many of them also have a "site" locator that often actually uses google maps. It should be reasonably simple to come up with a list of the most widespread of these and to gather the data from their websites possibly ...

You could try ping for a minimalistic solution. Ping is a computer network administration software utility used to test the reachability of a host on an Internet Protocol (IP) network and to measure the round-trip time for messages sent from the originating host to a destination computer and back. On Windows, you can do something like ping www.google....

You can try: iw which is the basic tool for WiFi network-related tasks (See: Wireless network configuration) Wireless Tools (WT): iwconfig/iwlist (set of tools allowing to manipulate the Wireless Extensions), wpasupplicant (most distributions nowadays have wpa_supplicant installed by default) Read more: Wireless tools for Linux at Wikipedia

There seem to be a number of options on how to do this. Unfortunately, there's no real pure Windows application. They all seem to rely on scripts and the like. As One of the SuperUser quetions pointed out, there is a scripting tool called WebInject that could be used to make a script that opens up the page and logs in for you. As I mentioned in the comments,...

There are many Automation apps to achieve what you want – and more. There are even single-purpose app exactly for that: Automatically activate/deactivate WiFi. So depending on whether you want "just that" – or think of "starting with this, and then see what else is possible", recommendations might differ. To make a good choice, some background first: How ...

I'd recommend FolderSync for that. In order to fulfill your requirements, there's a one time setup – and then just "let it do its job": Configure an "Account". FolderSync understands a bunch of protocols; for your case, Samba/CIFS should do fine. So you create an "account" with the credentials to be used on the Windows machine the files should go to (...

On Android devices, WiFi passwords are stored in an area no "normal" app can access (if you are interested in details, it's file system permissions behind this). Thus, if an app shall access stored WiFi passwords, it requires root access. Without root powers – no way, to my knowledge not even via ADB¹. If you take a look at my app listings on WiFi Password ...

I would suggest an arbitrary combination of a Windows QR code generator (that can encode arbitrary portions of text) and an Android QR code reader app. I use this combination for exactly the same purpose, for quickly transferring small amounts of data from a PC to a mobile device. The only requirement from the question that is not fulfilled by this is ...

Acrylic WiFi Free sound like a good alternative. It is free for non comercial usage (has paid plans, that costs 16.99 USD for one year license or 47.99 USD for lifetime license) and it has direct download link, so I don't have to fill any form before getting it.

You should look into Kali Linux as a "tool set" to perform testing (and as a learning tool). It comes with over 600 pre-installed penetration-testing programs "out of the box" so to speak, and there is an active user community behind it that may give you some support options while you're in learning mode. If you want a more or less independent summary of ...

To make use of any given part of the electromagnetic spectrum you have to have hardware that makes use of that part of the spectrum. To do so legally you also need to a licence to use that part of the spectrum for that purpose.

I used Hotspot Finder some years ago. I used it in Germany, but it seems to work in Mexico City just as well, but not in Costa-Rica, nor in Santiago, Chile. So, it won't serve all your destinations but maybe some of them. It does not give you a downloadable map, though. I used it together with a screencapture program and thus stored the map kinda offline. ...

If you have a network shared directory on each machine you can just drag and drop into it with file explorer/dolphin/etc., once the shared folder is mounted regardless of the type of network connection, (just the speed changes). No additional software needed - you may have to also do some network settings of the connection types in windows, (home or office ...
