Windows 7: Turning on login script i.e. at Starbucks cafe

Turning on login script i.e. at Starbucks cafe

hi guys,

It seems I disabled something but when I connect to any wireless networks that require a browser login, i.e. at a starbucks, hotels, etc I don't get by default their login page when launching any browser (ie, chrome, ff), in most cases I have to type 192.168.0.1, for me is fine but well i'm not the only one using this machine..

there should be an option somewhere to enable automatic detection, in fact my work laptop automatically opens the login page on the browser..

thanks
Gabrio

1.) Have you tried cleaning all caches and deleting all browser history?

2.) If you try browsing to any website the login page should come up.

3.) Some locations of places do not have things configured properly. Windows will usually give an indication in the bottom right hand corner that the access point requires a login in the browser.

hi

actually i found out that, if my homepage is on a secure https:// then i get the certificate error, and the Wifi's Browser login page doesn't automatically load, since it's another https:// and i get a warning saying that the page seems to have changed from xyz https to yzx https and therefore is suspicious for all browsers.

BUT it works if i set the default page to the non https:// version, then i get the correct redirection to the https:// wifi's browser login page.

Actually i think there's a setting to override the security mismatch but at the end of the day is better being notified, when is a real world situation over a secure website.

I agree. You could try resetting internet explorer to see if that helps.

my homepage is https://duckduckgo.com

my browser wants to open https://wifirouterlogin.com

and when i launch it i get the Certificate Error page, he basically says that https://duckduckgo appears to be https://wifirouterlogin.com and therefore he presents me the error page as a warning sign.

BUT if i just set homepage to http://www.duckduckgo.com - which is NOT the secure page, it works fine and i get the wifi login page at https://wifirouterlogin.com.....

SO bottom line, i don't think is doing the wrong thing, after all, before i discovered this i cleared cookies/temp files etc and didn't make any difference...but setting homepage to http://duckduckgo.com (no S), DID make the change

HOWEVER i would still like to know if this IS a security setting somewhere...if you know it.
