  1. Connecting to Public WiFi


    Since the latest update was pushed last week, I cannot connect to public WiFi networks that require verification on a browser after making the connection (Google Starbucks). Any suggestions?

    :)

  3. Windows 10 not connecting to public wifi

    Hi Craig,

    Let me verify some information to help us sort out this issue regarding connecting to a public. Allow me to ask the following:

    • Were you able to connect to your company's public wifi before?
    • Can your tablet connect to a different public wifi?
    • Is Airplane mode disabled on your tablet?

    Before looking into the other settings, please make sure that the Airplane mode is turned off on your tablet, then try to reconnect. If you're able to connect to your company's wifi before, then I suggest that you forget the network from your tablet first
    before you reconnect to it. Just navigate to Settings > Network & Internet > Wi-Fi > Manage known networks > select the company's wifi, then hit
    Forget. Once done, reconnect to the network and see if it works. If not, reboot or restart your tablet and try again.

    Please update this thread with the result so we can further check on it if the issue persists.

    Regards.
