20235 - WIFI - When a network requires a web page to log in (captive portal)

How do I log my Livescribe wifi smartpen into a network when the log in is through a web page that requires a User Name/ID?

To access some WiFi networks, you may need to use a web page to enter a user name and password (this is known as a "captive portal").  Additionally, you may need to accept terms and conditions or check a confirmation box.

If you have access to a wireless device, you can check the network by trying to connect to the Internet.  If a log in page opens then you are connecting to a captive portal commonly found at coffee shops, airports, schools, and hotels.

The Livescribe wifi smartpen does not support these types of WiFi networks, but please reference these articles for possible solutions:
