safari – How can a public WLAN load the "Accept Terms of Use" page for you to use?

For some time, I've found that my MacBook Air does not load public Wi-Fi sites. All bars in the Wi-Fi icon above are solid, but the page I can connect to will not load. Never really bothered me.

This week, my wife started chemo and radiation therapy. There is a lot to learn when that happens. I had my laptop in the clinic with me to organize some things and check some while she underwent radiation. But I could not connect to their WiFi. I've tried many ideas from my iPhone search, but nothing worked. No frustration I needed.

So today, before I went to the clinic, I searched online again for someone who had a similar problem, and I found this page.

On March 28, 2018, when someone with the same problem as me wrote JBIS wrote this: "Go http://captive.apple.com This is the only way to ensure that it is displayed. " tilt Connect to the Internet and enter it http://captive.apple.com in the search bar.

When they took my wife to the clinic for treatment today, I did just that, and it worked. Your Wi-Fi page was loading and I was able to do the things I needed to do while waiting for my wife. One of the things on my list, later, when she was resting, was to find a way to thank this side and the person who gave this endearing advice.

This site recommends that you need 50 points before you can comment – in my case, "Thanks, JBis" for a helpful response almost two years ago that has done its job today. Therefore, I could not comment on the original post.

We hope that this contribution will allow others to benefit from the solution and recognize the person – JBis – who shared it.
