I have added this to my Menu under Internet

WiFi Toggle Off/On

So, looking at the above in Reverse;
create the file WiFi reset and place it in .bin
and point your menu to where you placed that file.

that file contains this code

Code: Select all


rfkill block wifi
sleep 1
rfkill unblock wifi
sleep 5
read -p "Press Enter"

at your girlfriends house, toggle the WiFi Off/On and it should bring up her Wifi router.

you don't need that 'speedtest' line. I just stuck it in there.
