Not sure to go with this........?
I am sitting in an Auto Dealership waiting for my car and using their Wireless using Slackware 13.1.0 because my Sabayon 6 Wireless won't connect via Firefox 5..
This problem occurs on the same Lenovo Thinkpad SL410..which I have installed Sabayon 6, Debian 6, Slackware 13.1 & Kubuntu 10.04 lts.
I booted to Sabayon per usual but while I connected to the Dealer (No Security) customer WiFi Firefox 5 would not bring up the Dealer's Signature page.. See, like so many public WiFi you are immediately faced with that Host company's sign on Web page. The page appears after connect in Slackware but not Sabayon.
So Both Wifi establish connection but only Slackware's Firefox 5 displays the Signon web page. Sabayon's Firefox 5 just gives back a [Cannot Connect]...
Also Slackware uses Wicd to establish connections....
Any thoughts?..........Coming to you from Slackware
