    A captive portal is a Web page that some networks use to block access until the user performs some specific action. Most times it's just to show the terms of use or for the user to input his login information.

    A common example:
    You connect to the wifi at a Starbucks café. You use your web browser to go to your favorite news site. Instead of going there, you are redirected to the Starbucks page asking you to agree to their wifi terms of service.

    If your real-life use is not similar to that, a screen shot and an explanation of the site might be helpful.

    I've seen some where they have you view an advertisement or watch a commercial before giving you internet access.

    That's quite the overthinking. If it was on a home connection I suppose it's possible but there's no need for a captive portal login for that. However - a captive portal in the context of a shared network in a public place this would not be the case.
