How to Force a Public Wi-Fi Network Login Page to Open?
I have a question about connecting to public Wifi hot-spots (without network key):
On IOS, when I connect to a public wifi (train station, hotels, airport, supermarket, etc...), a Safari window opens and asks me to authenticate or connect. However, I have just tried to connect to the public WiFi at a supermarket with my N5, and the wifi immediately connected me. No web page opened. I went to the browser, tried to open 2 web pages, but I had no internet... Is there any special handling to do to open the "login page"?
Thank you in advance!
@stanwood Always found that very hit and miss. Sometimes it worked others not at all. Just realized never tried it with Onoin browser though.
@Lakotaubp Thank you Lakotaubp. I just browsed the web and it seems that "https" secured web pages are mostly not recognized by public Wi-Fi. It seems that this workaround works well:
Connect to the public wifi
Open morph browser
Type http://neverssl.com OR 192.168.1.1
Web page should automatically be redirected to the login page.
I will try next time I'll be on a public Wi-Fi and let you know.
I am doing this with 188.8.131.52 in morph, it will redirect you to login page
For me, I usually just go to google.com. Haven't tried this for a long time though so not sure if it still work.
