Title: WIFI issues
Post by: Minux1 on January 04, 2020, 03:40:08 pm
Can connect to my WIFI at home with no problem.
Can access internet thru my iPhone using its personal hot spot capability.
Will not connect directly to the public internet at Tim Hortons or Wendys.
The Tim Horton & Wendy free internet authentication screen comes up but when I click the connect button nothing happens.

Finally got the WIFI working with Firefox tweaking.
That wonky Peppermint firewall control dialogue box is useless ... freezes most of the time so I turned it off.

A check box that didn't appear right away was preventing me from pressing the "I agree" button.
I presume those screens run on a java platform.
Might be the java support wasn't updated so I updated it.
