Question

Hotspot Wifi Connection

by rayk3 / September 4, 2016 12:13 PM PDT

So I want to connect to the hotspot, which requires me to go to the webpage and type in the username/password. That's how I do it on my laptop. But I obviously can't do that on the Samsung Smart TV. It connects but requires log in. And I obviously can't go to the web page without WiFi connection, so I can't type in username/password. Stuck in catch 22!
What should I do!?

I think you'll have to ask the hotspot owner about this.
