My son is at the airport. He will be there for many hours, waiting for a connecting flight. He can't log on to the network. I spoke with the tech person for the company that runs the network, t-mobile. It is a captive network, meaning when you connect to the network, you are pushed onto a webpage to buy access. Rather than that happening, the network drops my son.

Can anyone help with this? I note that there is no problem connecting to my home network.

The guy from T-Mobile told me that all the setting my son was using for the wireless (i.e. the ssid, automatic DHCP, etc., are correct).
