    Default Re: Cannot connect to free public wifi network that requires a sign in/login page?

    As with some others, I found Dolphin to be a better bet than Chrome at getting to an authentication page by typing in a random URL.

    Once the authentication page was found on Dolphin, I made a point of saving the URL and creating a new shortcut to it on the browser's homepage. Now clicking on that brings me directly there.
    As for Chrome, a lot more of a struggle to achieve that first connection, but once there, I created a shortcut to the URL, placed on the tablet (the three dots at top right > Add to Home screen) and it gave me the same ability.

    Both browsers struggle to work well on my N7 (2012) with 5.1.1, but that's a bigger problem of Google's creation.

    Default Re: Nexus 7: Cannot connect to free public wifi network that requires a sign in/login page?

    What worked for me is, I just opened the default android browser and the sign-in page came right up. That browser is good for something...
