Hello friends! This is a requirement and I don't know actually how to do it. I am willing to know if it's possible to enable smartphone's wifi on facebook page like using
ASP.NET. Like if someone wants to enable wifi in a specific place, then the user must like facebook page and then will be connected to the internet. Is there any possible way to do it? I would be happy to know from the experts - Thanks.

Don"t get it. Wifi is controlled by the user, a web app doesn't have this kind of control on local stuff for safety reason plus how it would be accessed if wifi is not yet enabled.
If you need further help start by explaining the goal regardless of technical stuff. You want to provide a wifi access point at your location ?????

PatriceSc! Actually one of my friend has a restaurant and he wants to enable wifi on facebook page like for the customers. You can say forcefully and he saw similar in one of the places (I don't know where). OK - May be it isn't possible with web application.
But with Andorid, is it possible to take control of the wifi access and redirect to facebook page, then internet connected? Thanks.

it seems you're after a first hit page when you connect to a page with the rules and where you click a checkbox and press the confirm/submit button and are then allowed to connect to the rest of the internet. Something hotels and supermarkets/malls do. I
Don't know if I would like to dine in that place if they forcefully would take my like in such a way.

Your question doesn't seem to have anything to do with asp.net. If I understand you, you want to force someone to see a specific Facebook page when they connect to your local wifi. That has to do with setting up your router to redirect, on connection,
to your facebook page. Search for that information (and it may or may not be possible, depending on your specific router). That is not really a topic for this forum.

So it seems definitely a Wifi access point. Some are able to show a webpage when the user select this wifi access point but it likely uses a local web server. Once logged you should be able to redirect where you want such as a Facebook page and the user
will like the page (or not).
You'll never be able to force them to like a Facebook page before giving them Wifi access (and as noted already it might be counterproductive and give a quite bad image).
If you need further help you should rather go to a networking forum and ask there about how to create a wifi access point (I imagine you'll have to use a computer and maybe install a web server on it if you want to show automatically a page when this Wifi
network is selected).
