Bypassing Device Limit When Using Hotel Wi-Fi

Family travel, lots of devices, a 2 device limit on hotel complimentary Wi-Fi isn’t going to work. Forget about the two device limit, you only need one! Simply connect a travel router to the hotel Wi-Fi, and use it as a hotspot to broadcast Wi-Fi to all your client devices including laptops, smartphones, tablets…etc. The hotel Wi-Fi will only recognize the travel router as a single device, and wouldn’t be able to see additional devices connected to the travel router.

How to Host an OpenVPN or WireGuard VPN Server using Brume 2
