We've all been there. You sit down at a coffee shop, connect to the WiFi, pull a valid IP, but fail to connect to the internet because you can't get the damn coffee shop login page to come up. Specifically, you open up your favorite browser, select a web page, and hope that the browser is automatically redirects to the login page, but it doesn't. Subsequently, you have no internet.

Is there a way to "coax" your browser to go to the redirected login page? With my Windows laptop, I think that IE works a little better since it's native to Windows. With my Mac, I think Safari works a bit better. Additionally, I've found that a little patience helps. Sometimes it takes a minute for the redirected page to come up.

Sometimes you can do an ipfonfig /all and see default gateway and then enter the IP address in your browser to get it to open

Seems reasonable. I'll give it a shot!
