Question:

Question: Hotspot login cannot open the page because the network connection was lost. Why?

Everyttime I try to connect to the wifi, all I get is about a second of the phone saying it is connected, before I get a login page, with the web adress of "captive.apple.com".


The login page is black, and after about a second I get the message,


"Error Opening Page: Hotspot login cannot open the page because the network connection was lost"


I've tried restarting the phone, resetting the network data, everytihng I can think of but no luck.


How can I fix this?

iPhone 4, iOS 7

Good day everybody. I had the same issue and I got crazy but keep up work on it about 1 week to have the resolution.
