I got hooked after picking up Use of Weapons when it came out in what? 1990? < scary thought
I was nearly Zakalwe when I joined here, but wound up re-using a nic used in other places.
That or "Grey Area", my favourite ship
Haha, my phones WiFi AP was Grey Area, with the only password that made sense "meat******". I still own all Bank's books both Iain M. and not. Such is my feeling of "damn, I'll never be able to read a new book of his again" I still have "The Quarry" & "Hydrogen Sonata" to read. I'll read them someday soon, but when I do I expect tears will be shed. Use of Weapons was first, then Player of Games then State of the Art. Somebody later kindly (well I say kindly) gave me their copy of The Wasp Factory.
And yeah, 1990. Jesus was it really? How did I get old? Apart from y'know not dying.
Prep: open web admin in chrome. Open inspection panel and selected 'network'. Then checked 'preserve log' was selected.
Act: submit a valid combination with something you'll easily recognise, and watch the network panel spill loads of calls. Locate the set calls that'll start with `http://192.168.0.1/snmpSet?` and find the two that include the password you just set.
Open each in a new tab.
Change the URL in the newly opened tabs so that parameter for the password matches the value you want and press enter.
When I did this, I got a JSON response that confirmed the setting had been made. I've resubmitted both tabs repeatedly in any order, and even after changing the SSID it still worked.
The offending file is "/skins/lgi/js/base.js?ver=9.1.116V". You can find this on the Sources tab. Search through that file for "errMsg_WeakPassword" and you'll find the first result is part of an else clause, which returns false. Change that to return true, hit Ctrl-S to save the file, then try to submit the web form again.
If you can paste the whole function, people can just copy the whole text directly into the console before they click to update their pass. That's a fair chunk easier than spotting the lines, if possible.
