Getting online at a hotel can be frustrating. Sometimes it’s difficult to know what the WiFi network name is for the hotel. Then when you can connect, you usually have to log in with your credentials. This usually means entering in your name and room number. If you get premium internet, you have to select it even though the login page says you’ll need to pay, the front desk said you won’t be charged and they’re never wrong, right?
But what if you can’t get the box to log into the network to show up. The WiFi signal shows that you’re online but you’re definitely not. I’ve written about the various tricks I’ve learned over the years that have helped us get online.
There are plenty of tips in that article but at the last hotel where we stayed, I was stumped. I was able to log into the hotel network on my MacBook and my iPad Pro but my phone was resisting. No matter what I did, I couldn’t get the login box to pop up.
