Mechanism to detect restricted access via internet hotspot

Image Number 7 for United States Patent #8131847.

The disclosed wireless device automatically detects the redirection of its internet access via a wireless hotspot network. The exemplary device algorithm provides the flexibility to detect either or both of DNS redirection and HTTP redirection, as well as to automatically accommodate such internet redirection. The proposed algorithm allows a wireless device user to be alerted and account for internet redirection when such internet redirection is automatically detected upon entering service via a hotspot. Alternatively, the wireless device may attempt to automatically meet the hotspot requirements and complete the internet access through the hotspot.
