    Have you called the cable company and asked them about it?
    Spoke to chat. They were clueless I think its a Windows Store/Microsoft issue not an Optimum issue

    That's what I say do a system restore to before when this appeared. Can you still click on that and connect to your Wi-Fi?

    Are you really that is from Microsoft not from any malware or your computer was hack ?

    Did you ask the Microsoft support ?

    I found this in the store: If you can read that, it says service is available only in the Seattle area. I say remove the hell out of this app.

    Is this the one that you have? If this is what you have it is not designed for your system take it out instantly

    I ran into this just a few minutes ago on a free Wi-Fi hotspot. When I clicked "view other connection options from provider" it thankfully took me to the regular login page. It had me peeved thinking the business in question had begun charging for previously free Wi-Fi.

    Good to know for future, however I think its easy to miss, just like creating a Windows user account without a Microsoft account, you can do it but you have to read between the lines
