Windows 10: Surface Pro 4 will not connect to Starbucks Wi-Fi?
Surface Pro 4 will not connect to Starbucks Wi-Fi?
I have not used my surface on many unknown Wi-Fi networks. However, I have not had any problems where did. Today I tried logging in to Starbucks Wi-Fi and got "no internet connection." I spent an hour on the phone sitting in Sbux talking to their Google-Sbux Wi-Fi tech support to no avail. I did all these:
Forgetting networks and re-connecting.
Disable/re-enable network adapter
Entering DNS settings.
Removal of the adapter driver and reinstall.
Nothing worked. I was pretty sure the tech was unfamiliar with Win 10 and was reading down a list of "fixes." At any rate, the problem was not solved. I suspect some sort of security switch with Win 10, but don't know where to look.
Internet searches found a few similar complaints regarding Surfaces and Starbucks' Wi-Fi. However, they were related to earlier models. Anyone have this problem and figure it out?
p.s. Of course I was the only one with a Microsoft product in a sea of Apple machines. You see how this type of thing further makes MS look bad.
Problem with Wi-fi sense maybe?
