BlackBerry :: How To Connect By WIFI To A Captive Portal
Mar 6, 2012
We have developed a WIFI marketing unit which stores locallised content on a linux PC and serves it by WIFI.Basically, you connect to the unit by WIFI and surf the information, and there is no internet as such so you cant go onto Google or anything. The unit has a 3G connection simply for us to update content and download usage stats.It works fine with Android and Iphone etc, but seems to struggle with Blackberry's. We can use a WIFI key if needed but would prefer not to.Does anyone know the best way to do this, do we need a WIFI key and if so, is it WEP, WPA, WPA2 etc etc.Or can we remove the WIFI key completely.From what I've seen, it appears that the blackberry favours the mobile connection over WIFI to get to the web, whereas, if I turn off mobile connection, it then connects fiune through the WIFI and shows the content
My iPhone 4s won't connect to our university wifi. The IT dept recently included a captive portal whenever we connect to the network. After choosing which network to connect (my university's wifi network) the phone shows up a sliding page (or browser?) named "Log In" shows up a blue button that says "cancel" and it connects to apple.com (as said in the text above it) then redirects to the network's gateway for captive portal (https://126.96.36.199 in my case) then nothing happens, it just shows a blank white screen. What do I do to fix this? It's becoming very annoying especially when i want to check my facebook or email.
My office uses a captive portal wifi system for non-work devices. On iOS 5.1, the OS would detect this and would pop up a browser window after connecting to the network for me to enter my login information. In addition, in the detailed wifi settings for the network, I would see two switches for enabling auto-join (connecting to the network) and auto-login (popping up the browser window).
After updating to iOS 5.1.1, on both my iPhone 4S and iPad (3rd gen) it no longer recognizes our network as a captive portal network. The extra settings are gone from the wifi settings, and the only way for me to join the network is to attempt to open a website in Safari and be redirected. Someone with access to a captive portal network can confirm whether or not this issue occurs for them in 5.1.1?
My playbook just decided not to connect to the wifi. I have my friends playbook right beside it, I checked to make sure all the settings were the same, yet it won't connect.
The bars are not illuminated.
When I goto to setup I can connect, and it appears to connect, then when I goto the main screen it is not connected. My playbook is a few months old (and I have connected to many Wifis) and I recently updated (mid-feb) to the new operating system, but it has been working fine until yesterday.
i have blackberry curve 8900 version 188.8.131.52 and i'm using the older version of facebook blackberry version 1.6.0 because i've read that you can use wifi with the older facebook version without data plan. however i still can't connect. it says "could not connect because a data service is not available...etc" i tried to turned it off and remove the sim card and battery however it's still not resolved. is there any other way i can use facebook blackberry using wifi?

I've been trying to access support from Motorola about my device's inability to connect to the internet and create a Motocast ID. It is now not even giving me error messages, and Motocast isn't starting up anymore when I plug it into my computer. I don't have wi-fi as that would involve having to buy a TV and various other unneeded things to get a wi-fi package, so I use a dongle for my internet. I am really unhappy about the service from Motorola and the fact that they've released a great idea before it's actually ready to be used.
I am on my second T-Mobile Galaxy S6. The first unit had a hardware camera defect as well as this wifi bug. I had them replace it and the new unit's camera is good but it has the same wifi issue. Here's what happens:
When I go to an area with an "open" wifi network, a notification pops up on my screen that says "Click here to connect to null." What's strange is I have almost all wifi features off, particularly "Network notification." It should not tell me when any network is available. I also have "Allow Always Scanning" off as well as Wifi Calling disabled (not that relevant). Anyway, once this happens, I have about 2 seconds to turn off wifi or else the phone will reboot. It's a "soft" restart though, meaning it shows the Samsung and T-Mobile logo then is back on again within 5-10 seconds and fully "booted" within 30 seconds. This will keep happening until I turn off wifi.
It's not just any wifi connection that will cause the issue. I think it has to be an "open" connection that uses a portal for authentication (think universities, hotels, airports, etc). Recently, I clicked on one of the notifications (connect ot null) and saw a Cisco portal. I am not sure if it's isolated to Cisco AP's...
connect an old RIM 957 to the pc?I need the oldest desktop software possible,preferable 2.1 (i have 3.5 but it will not recognize the device)I have an RS232 to USB adapter with the drivers installed,works well cuz i successfully connected a Blackberry 5820 with it.But it won't find my good old 975.I am running on Windows 7.
I wiped my 7750 trying to start clean since it's a used device. Now it's on JVM Error 505, usually no big deal. Just reload software with the app loader. That's not working. It connects fine every time, and acts like its going fine until it connects with the boot loader. Every time without fail it loses the connection to the device immediately after it appears to connect to the boot loader?
I have two laptops by HP with Windows 7. I am using them as development machines.On one I can connect the playbook but on the other one I cannot connect it. It always goes into driver installation mode. No matter how many times I have reinstalled the driver, it doesn't detect the playbook. WiFi connection works though. The USB connection fails.
I cannot connect to my mobile network. I recently got a bb 8800 which has been unlocked to all networks (checked this all categories disabled when I type MEPD).
I have a sim card with three (network) but it won't connect to the mobile network just displays SOS in the top right corner.
I have tried restarting/taking out battery/changing sim/leaving for hours but nothing. In manage connections it is set to orange when I try to scan for available networks it only displays orange, vodafone, O2 and t-mobile and all of these won't connect.
what to do I lost my old bb (and didn't have insurance silly me) so got a replacement sim from my network and managed to get this 8800 for a good price but that's no good if it's not connecting.
i got a new BB Playbook but cannot connect to my Laptop. I have upgraded to the latest software and my laptop has Windows 7 Service Pack 1 in it. Why is this so difficult? I have followed all steps i know and advised in the threads but still it's not straight-forward.
I am new to this blackberry smartphone and have brought a new BB curve 9300 with BSNL connection. I am unable to connect to my wireless network my phone displays my network but does not connect at all says " Failed to associate with the network". I have tried all possible way
Originally I was having a problem where whenever I tried to load an application onto my device I would get an error saying that there was not enough room on the device. (Even though there was about 15GB left...)I decided to try a "Data Wipe" from the Settings menu.The Data Wipe seems to have worked a little too well and wipe everything on the device except the browser app. The device also does not connect to the PC anymore.Whenever I connect it to a computer the "BlackBerry Smartphone" driver installs but nothing else. The Device Manager does not recognize it either. Nor does the Desktop Manager.I have tried a couple different computer and nothing has worked.I have also tried to install the device update, but because none of the drivers will recognize the device I cannot install the update as the update tool does not recognize the device is plugged in.
at about 6pm last night my blackberry just disconnected from internet services. i can still use texts, but am unable to connect to bbm, twitter and facebook. it connected once or twice but it still wouldnt send or receive bbm messages.
I have a BB 9630 Tour Verizon which I am using in India on the Vodafone network.The phone was working fine for the first 10 days or so.I am unable to use the data services on the phone for the past 7 days. I have checked with vodafone and they say that they have checked their systems and as per their system all my services are active.The have asked me to hard re-boot the phone by removing the battery and SIM card. But this has not solved the problem.Then they asked me to go to options -> advanced options -> host routing table ->register now. The screen then shows "Registration message sent". But nothing happens beyond that and I have not received any message from BB that my phone has been registered.
I'm from Mumbai India and use a service provider "Loop Mobile". When I have my data settings on, I am able to perform all the BlackBerry functions, such as BBM, Email, etc. When I turn off data, and am on a Wifi network, I can only use the browser, There is no connection to the BlackBerry service. This problem is with all the people I know on Loop Mobile. With other users on Vodafone or Airtel, only wifi works perfectly fine.Please help! It is very expensive to use data when on International Roaming!
