Using Center Parcs wifi with Amazon Fire Stick / TV

Trying to use the Center Parcs wifi with an Amazon Fire Stick doesn’t work out of the box, it prompts you for a login page that disappears.

I got this to work but it is not easy. The way these login pages work is they register your MAC address (your wifi card has a unique ID known as a MAC address). If you have a linux laptop (& maybe Mac / Windows but you would change your MAC address in a different way if possible) you can clone the MAC address, log in with your laptop and this opens up the connection for your Fire TV.

Here’s how I did it:

  1. Get your Fire Stick MAC address & turn off Fire Stick
  2. Install macchanger on your linux machine
  3. Stop networking on your linux machine
  4. As a precaution note Linux wifi MAC address
  5. Temporarily change your wifi interface MAC address to match the firestick
  6. Start networking & connect to Center Parcs wifi.
  7. Click through login screen & try browsing
  8. Reboot / Shutdown linux machine to reset MAC
  9. Power up Fire Stick & connect to Center Parcs wifi

    There is an easier way. From a laptop which will display the prompt modify the query string of the acceptance prompt with the ip and mac address of your device. Voila it takes those parameters on faith and you are now good to go.

    I was having trouble trying to open netflix/prime video,/bbc iplayer but then I went on itv hub and it brought up the “agree to terms and conditions” option. Using hamburger (three lines) button, I scrolled to tick box and agreed. Everything then works fine
