I have been having problems with public wifi on my laptop since last Nov. Running windows 10.
Every time I try to connect to internet with a restricted site (ie requiring a login/password) browser opens to msftconnecttest://redirect
and never goes any further - get stuck in this loop. It has been an issue since a windows 10 update sometime in fall 2017.
I have tried:
changing default browser from edge to IE, (even tried googlechrome)
reseting internet options (internet options ->advanced-> reset (but not to factory settings to delete all my personal home pages ect)
fiddling with the VPN settings
None of these seem to work.
Only way I can connect is to use a personal hotspot.
Why is this an ongoing issue?
Please provide a solution that I can copy/paste into a word or text doc that I can post on my desktop so I can remember this again when I travel next time.
