Many Wi-Fi hotspots these days have a "web login", especially free ones. You know, the ones that redirect any HTTP request to their login form. Windows usually displays the "Additional login information may be required" notification for these.
Is there a way that I can automate the process of such logins, ie. save my username and password (for a given hotspot)? Ideally, I want this to happen without even opening my usual browser, although if the process itself automatically opens and closes an Internet Explorer window to perform the login that might be OK.
