Cannot Sign In Using Hotel WiFi on Linux (Ubuntu / Mint)
I could connect to the WiFi and obtain an IP address, however, the hotel’s internet sign-in page failed to load in both Chromium or Firefox. Turns out it was a DNS oddity.
Update (thanks to Abe)
For Ubuntu 17.04 simply run:
sudo dhclient -r
When I had this problem on Linux Mint the following solved the problem for me:
- Comment out
/etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf(i.e. put a
#at the beginning of the line)
- Restart network-manager:
sudo service networking restart
The following commands might also be required for some:
sudo dhclient -r sudo dhclient
I would appreciate if you have time to let me know if this worked for you or if anything else was needed.
