My Iconoa A1 recognizes the public wifi, even notes excellent connection but never connects to internet. I have no problem with a secure network or using wifi tethered from my cell as a hot spot but that defeats the purpoae of FREE public wifi. Help.
Many of the free WiFi hotspots require a usage agreement be read and approved before they actually let you on the network. try bringing your browser up and doing a forced refresh to make sure they don't have that page for you.
