View Full Version : [ubuntu] I can connect to public wifi (like attwifi) but firefox doesn't load any webpages

Hi. This is a newbie problem maybe some of you can help me with.

I can connect to public wifi ssid's, like attwifi, but I never get any response with firefox. Firefox doesn't even load the login page you see as you connect to the internet through attwifi. I often get messages to the effect that a server is not responding. Even so, however, I think I can ping through the open connection. This problem seems to be isolated to public internet connections because I can use my own home wireless connection without any difficulty.

Any advice? Thanks.
