SFO Airport Free WiFi and an Android Samsung S4

image

So you might have found it annoying
that your fuzzy new Android phone/tablet doesn’t like to connect to WiFi in certain places with the terms and conditions to accept before allowing you to connect.
For me and my Samsung S4 Mini, it turned out to be a minor issue with Chrome’s pop up blocking.

After getting the usual error page like this: [SSL CONNECTION ERROR]
image

or this [WEB PAGE NOT AVAILABLE]
image

I opened another window and happened to be on the flysfo.com

image

website going through the Samsung instructions when I noticed the page suddenly changed and up popped the Accept Terms and Conditions page.
Accepted it and off I went on SFO Free WiFi (yea.)
You’ll also notice the screenshot shows the gateway address for their portal service: http://216.9.98.194/guest
– hitting that link may have helped, too.
