How to force Login Screen on Public Wi-Fi (e.g. Pret, Starbucks)

Problem

After joining the network, there is no login screen.

Solution

  1. Visit address 192.168.1.1 on your browser. This connects to the local router and should present the login screen.
  2. Change the public DNS server to the default. Remove all entries.
