Wifi hotspot login problem
Apologies if this has already been answered but I have searched the forum to no avail...
OK, so the problem is when I try to log on to a wifi hotspot- one where the network itself is unsecure but when you open your browser you are redirected to a hotspot login page with username & password required. I use this system to access my wifi at my flat (Ozonebe.net) but also in cafes etc.
It has happened twice now on 2 different networks (once on my flat network, once in a cafe) that it will connect to the network no problem but then the little cloud saying "Additional login information may be required" will not appear and then when I open my browser, it does not redirect me to the login page. When I then try to type in the URL by hand, it still won't load. Both times that it has happened, it has been when I have tried to get onto the same network a few hours or so after connecting to it for the 1st time. In other words, I will have connected to it with no problems before & it's only on subsequent use that it fails to load the login page.
For one of the networks it happened with (in a cafe), when I then came back a few days later to use the internet, it worked! It loaded the login page no problem. But then I restarted my computer while still in the cafe & when I tried to reconnect after doing that, lo & behold, it wouldn't load the login page.
Help would be greatly appreciated, especially because one of the hotspots it happens with is the one I use for my main internet connection in my flat.
Thanks in advance!

Anyone with a clue on that?
I have the exact same problem with Windows 7, it worked just once... and then nothing.
I tried with Internet Explorer, FireFox, Chrome, same thing...
It works well from my phone (Windows Phone 7.5).
Note : I'm trying to connect to a "Free Wifi" hotspot, which is provided by the french ISP called "Free", and which uses an HTML authentication with redirection.
Any idea would be very appreciated!
