    So, a couple of weeks ago I noticed this issue and haven't had any success at finding a fix. Halp!

    I can connect to my home wifi, just fine. But when I try to connect to any other free wifi source (at school, doctor's office, mall, etc) that I used to be able to connect to just fine, it won't allow me. These sources have verification sites that pop up and you have to confirm connection; Username and password for school, just confirming terms of use with the dr. office, etc. When the pages pop up, I get a connection error in chrome:

    At first it was ERR_QUIC_PROTOCOL_ERROR, but I disabled the quic protocol and now it's ERR_CONNECTION_CLOSED.

    Booting in safe mode, I still can't connect.

    Deleted all recently downloaded apps

    Cleared the cache

    Forgot and reconnected to the services

    Smart network switch is disabled

    I'm not sure what else I can do at this point. It's already costing me money in data since I can't connect to any wifi outside of my home.

    Thanks for any help anyone can give!

    I registered an account so I can add to this thread..

    Today I reset the Network settings and that didn't help either.

    Well, I found the answer to this on another forum.

    Uninstall the updates from your Chrome browser. Whatever recent updates are blocking the page from loading correctly. After uninstalling, "forget" the public wifi you're trying to connect to, then reconnect to it.
