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:

    Restarting Surface

    Restarting browser/Wi-Fi

    Disable firewall.

    Clearing cache

    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.
