Over the past few years I have had the opportunity to travel to several different events all over the United States. Over this time I have noticed that companies have a tendency to create internet access passwords that are easy for people to remember. Often the majority of the password is the access point name.
One reason I truly dislike staying in Hilton hotels is because they charge a lot for everything. The rooms are often more expensive, they don’t serve a continental breakfast, and they often charge $20 or more per day to use their internet (if you are not in the lobby). After having stayed in many of these hotels I received a higher end Hilton Honors membership and they started providing me with a coupon code to get free internet in my room. I thought I should share this simple code with everyone so that everyone can enjoy the free internet until Hilton decides to change it.
Step 1 –
Connect to their access point which is almost always “hhonors”, open a browser and let it direct you to their login page. The login page often looks like this:
Step 2 –
Check that you have a coupon code and that you agree to their terms of service.
Step 3 –
Once you click next you are asked to enter a code. The code is as easy as this: HHMONTHYEAR.
So if the month is March and the year is 2013 the code would be HHMARCH13
If the month is June and the yare 2012 then the code is HHJUNE12.
Step 4 –
Simple as that, now you can use the internet. I don’t know if this works at all Hilton Hotels but the few I have stayed at this has worked. Let me know if it works for you.
Many other networks do the same thing that Hilton does, for example, if you are near a conference called ABCXYZ 2013 and the access point is ABC often the password will be ABCXYZ13 or ABCXYZ2013 or just ABCXYZ. More often than not after a few tries you will be able to gain free internet access.
