Default Can't connect to wandering Wi-Fi hotspot

I can connect to my Wi-Fi at home without issue, but I can't login to the Wi-Fi at work.

When I connect to the Wi-Fi at work, it automatically opens the login page. I'm supposed to click login (no password) and on the next page, click continue. I should have Wi-Fi access after clicking continue, but on my Galaxy Note 3, the browser just keeps loading until it gives a timeout error. I have tried this on both the stock browser and Google Chrome. I have tried reconnecting Wi-Fi, restarting my phone....

It works fine on my Skyrocket....

I sometimes get this on the T-Mobile hotspots on the train. But only when I still have a previously used login page open in another tab/browser.

Do you have that, by any chance?

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.

I end tasked all the browsers and cleared the ram. Is the login page something.wanderingwifi.com? I wonder if it's just the Wi-Fi hardware.

Tried logging in with Firefox. Same problem. Is this that rare or are people just not logging in to hotspots?

Same problem with my wife's Galaxy S4. I guess we're the only ones.
