Unable to connect to school network’s wireless login page

My roommate had this problem.  He would authenticate and connect to the school’s network.  When he opens the browser there is supposed to be a redirect portal page that asks for his campus ID and password.  His computer was not displaying this page although people around him were accessing the network just fine.

  • Try using a different browser; see if that works.
  • Is it a certificate issue?  Make sure your time and date are correct.
  • Check the DNS settings for your wireless adapter if the initial page is not coming up at all.
    • Control Panel>Network Connections and select the adapter you’re connecting over (wireless or LAN)
    • Click Properties, then select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
    • Click Properties
    • Make sure DNS servers are set to Automatic
