connecting boxee box to a password wifi netwpork
I am having trouble connecting my boxee at my work.
The wifi I am using has no encryption BUT the first time you connect you are directed to a login page where you enter a password to continue. Soon as you enter this, you are all set for awhile (days, weeks, etc)
I was able to test at our main office by plugging an ethernet cable in and that verified my login. But soon as I switched back to wifi, I am still unable to verify pass the work login page.
Is there anyway to bypass this?
The steps with a computer to connect is to try to open a page, it would auto direct to a login page, where I enter a password. Soon as this is done, I can continue surfing.
One of the wifi routers is about 2 feet from my boxee. The setup is on a mesh network. I can plug it in directly to the router here, but still only showed logged on, and wont go pass the main screen as boxee cant get past the company loginok webpage.
One of the other guys here wants to buy a boxee after seeing the "demo" I showed him when I hooked it up in the office, but he is wanting to see if mine is a glorified paperweight or able to get it working here
