Avast web shield blocks url for singing in on wifi hotspot
( address   http://www.wifi-spot.biz/~h004/login.php?gw_address=192.168.1.1&gw_port=2060&gw_id=h004&mac=5c:93:tt:zz:yy:xx).

I cant login to wifi hotspot becouse i cant access login page, untill i turn off avast web shield. Other AV dont block hotspot login url (i tried eset nod32).

Please, advice me what to do so i can use wifi hotspot without turning off avast web shield.

Avast free antivirus: 11.1.2241

Other av's don't check for blacklisting on IP's, avast does.
It is the IP that is blacklisted for good reasons.
