Im currently using Ubuntu 11.04 but the same problem existed with 10.10. i connect to the Ethernet port and load up the browser. i can see in the bottom left its got the address something.hotspot.... big long address. but it keeps failing to load the page up so i cant enter the password and user name to log in. Ive tried it with firefox and chrome.
if i load up windows 7 in virtual box and open chrome im brought straight to the log in page once i log in there im able to shut down windows and browse the net with Ubuntu. Obviously its not that big of a deal but its time consuming to wait for windows to load. Is there a reason its doing this and a way that i can log in straight from a browser in Ubuntu.
