if you have trouble logging on with a WEP pwd, try putting a $ in front of the pwd

I had trouble connecting to a hotel network a couple months ago. I connected to the open wireless router just fine, but the only webpage that would come up in Safari was a password page to access the internet. I entered the password the front desk gave me, but it kept going back to the password page. I tried Firefox and entered the password once and the internet worked. I could then go back to Safari and use the internet just fine.

I'd wager that what you experienced was more likely a Safari caching issue -- it was showing you the cached page -- than a connection issue.

I have also run into a similar problem. I found that if I had multiple tabs open in Safari, I could not log in, but if I had only one, it would let me. Using Firefox also worked.

True, but this isn't the issue here -- I was able to get on to the hotel's router fine, but it wouldn't give me an IP address. Thanks to the poster above for the info about getting the router address.
