  1. Thank you! I used it in-flight (from my phone) to solve my MacBook connection problem. Totally forgot about the Google DNS servers being in my Network prefs.

  2. None of the options worked for me, but then I tried removing all the DNS I had (preferences->network->advanced->DNS->Remove (-)), then turning off and on the wifi, and log in again to the network, and worked

  4. Woohoo! Serhat is a hero – this is a problem which has been bugging me for years. But it’s now solved (the second step worked for me).

    Many many thanks!

  5. That fix was working for me, but I made the mistake of upgrading to 10.15.2 and now launching Captive Network Assistant doesn’t work any more – nothing happens. Any thoughts?

  6. None of these worked for me. What did work was to connect to the public wifi network, then force this app to launch: /System/Library/CoreServices/Captive Network Assistant.app, which opens the captive authentication windows.

  7. It seems ludicrous that you have to through these steps to work in a hotel. It makes a Mac useless for business travel

  8. none of this worked for me. Can’t even connect to my ipad’s hot spot (or any hot spots with a landing page. . the WiFi symbol in the top right shows of for fractions of a second and disappears again. The Wifi settings show that I’m connected (showing a local IP as well as a router IP) but I’m not online. Any ideas? iOS 13.2.2
