[isf-wifidog] hotspot map problem

So is there a solution, other than trying to allow access to all the needed 
google servers or all listed google addresses.
That seems like it would be a real problem to maintain.

We used to remove the map button when the user is at a hotspot, but not
logged-in.  Unfortunately, that caused problems for people under the same
subner, but not behind a wifidog gateway, so that feature was removed.

The drawback is that as you experienced, the users can click on alink they
cannot reach.
