Why and how we can bypass restricted paid WiFi's at public places such as airports, etc ?

            We might be wondering some times on how to bypass the restricted paid wifi in public places to access particular URL . To bypass some poorly configured WiFi's just append (without the double quotes)   " ?.jpg  " to end of your URL string. This should work in many instances where generally blocker is configured let images through.  Appending ?.jpg to the URL makes the blocker think that the URL is an image. On the other hand, anything after the ? doesn't change the actual webpage requested, it only changes the GET headers. (so http://google.com/?.jpg and http://google.com/ give the same page). Note that if there already is a query string in the URL (something after a question mark), then you must use &.jpg instead of ?.jpg, as only the first question mark is considered for making a query string
