Problems accessing free AT&T WIFI at Barnes & Nobles using Android Browser
I'm posting my discussion with AT&T WIFI support in case anyone here has an idea of how I can get this to work. I really only visit B&N once a week, but it's annoying to me that I can't get this to work.
I'm using Cyanogen's latest ROM on the HTC MyTouch3G, although I don't think that should be an issue.
AT&T WIFI Support,
I just checked the browser settings and Java Script was already enabled, so that's not the cause. But perhaps HTML options should be made available since some do leave the JS disabled as a measure to reduce security vulnerabilities.
Please advise what other things I should try or if there are other links that would take me to the agreement to terms and conditions page or whatever it needs.

AT&T WIFI support,
I have been trying to access the Internet over WIFI at the B&N hotspot location in Wilmington, NC in Mayfaire without success using my HTC MyTouch3G phone. I've tried the built in Android browser and a 3rd party browser called the Dolphin browser without success.
I get connected to the WIFI signal without a problem. But then it automatically takes me to the default B&N page link with an AT&T banner. The AT&T banner says "AT&T WIFI Get Connected to the Internet." To the right of it there's an orange button that says "See Options", but I can click on it all I want and it does nothing.
I'm wondering if it's some sort of scripted banner (flash or something) that my browser can't use.
The Internet is free at the B&N, plus I have AT&T DSL at home, so even when it wasn't free I was able to use the Internet with my notebook.
I'm just wondering if there is a direct link that could take me to the 'agree to terms' or something, so that I can get to the view options page. I did notice that I could get to http://www.att.com
, but that's about it. Why are there "see options" anyways when it's now free at B&N? I've tried this during my weekly visits to B&N for a month now with no luck and the employees at B&N have no idea either.
I look forward to your response.
