This problem's happening on both my retiring Pre 2 and my new Pre 3, both on 2.2.4. At work there's a captive portal to connect, which either phone can detect. On the page you have to type in some identifying info, then submit with an "I Agree [to not be naughty]" button. Our network then saves the credentials for one year before they redirect you back through the portal to again complete the form.
Trouble is, on both phones nothing happens after clicking "I Agree." It never advances to the next page. Very rarely, after a very long time it will say "Network connected." But then as soon as I try to use data it's clearly still not connected (no data, browser complains "no network", etc).
The browser doesn't redirect straight away, either. It just complains about enabling the network. I got the URL for the portal page from my laptop and manually typed it in the browser, then filled the form and hit enter to see what it'd do. But it just twirls away, never loading or moving on to a new page.
Anyone ever seen this behavior? Never have trouble on any other captive portals, just this one.
