Anonabox Pro – Disable Wi-Fi

The following video demonstrates how to disable the Wi-Fi on an  Anonabox Pro.

  1. Connect to the device via the LAN Ethernet port.
    It has a build DHCP server by default so you do not need to configure the IP.
    After you get connected, go to the default location of the device interface, which is http://192.168.19.84:1776/.
  2. After the interface loads, enter the root password and click on the Login button.
    (if you are using a brand new Anonabox or a box that was recently flashed then click on the Login button without entering a password (if you enter one, it will be ignored)).
  3. Then, go to the top menu Network and select the option Wireless
  4. At the new page, under the category Wireless Overview click on the Disable button.
  5. Finally, click on the OK button when you get the Really shut down network? confirmation box and wait for the changes to get applied, the image with the Wi-Fi logo will change to one that has a red stamp on it and right under the SSID field you will get the message Wireless is disabled or not associated.

To enable the WiFi, just repeat the steps above and click on the Enable button.

Reasons I got involved in Computer Science and Informatics

  • From a young age, I found it very interesting
  • I have a good friend that supported me all the way
  • It is fun and challenging!
  • There are so many different topics, once you get bored of one you can skip to the next
  • There are new topics and challenges almost every day
  • It is something that you can teach yourself (especially nowadays that there is so much free material online)

Login to ‘CytaVoda WiFi’ with no password using your SIM card

Using Android devices that carry Cytamobile-Vodafone SIM cards with active RED and BLACK plans, you can connect to the CytaVoda WiFi using SIM authentication instead of using a password.

To do so

  • from the Wi-Fi manager of your cell phone click to connect on the CytaVoda WiFi network
  • at the new window click on the drop-down named EAP method
  • and select the option SIM
  • finally click on the Connect button.

The system will validate you and no further steps needed.

You will notice that your Wi-Fi manager will show a slightly different window than the usual when you click to connect on the network. This is normal as the network offers multiple authentication methods and it is giving you the option to choose which one to use. Of course, we do not know the password and the purpose of this post is to demonstrate the SIM authentication method.

The CytaVoda WiFi has a drawback, it does not offer unlimited data to the users.
Depending on what your SIM plan is, you will have a different monthly data allowance which is renewed every 1st of the month.

The data allowance limits that were applied at the time this post was written, were the following:

  • 200MB for: RED 1
  • 500MB for: RED 2
  • 1GB (1024MB) for: RED 3
  • 2GB (2048MB) for: RED 4 / RED Family / RED Plus / BLACK

You can check the amount of CytaVoda WiFi data that you consumed and the remaining data at the page http://miu.cyta.com.cy.
