Well, it is not easy to get connected to the public wi-fi network. But, if you follow some tips and tricks, you can definitely open a public network wi-fi page. Check out these wonderful tips for connecting to the public network wi-fi:

1. Turn Off Other Third-Party DNS Servers

DNS (Domain Name Servers) servers match domain names to their specific IP address and allow opening of web pages.

Whether you have OpenDNS or Google DNS server, for availing better connectivity, you are required to turn it off.

The network locations store the network settings at different locations. Therefore, you need to use different DNS for creating a new network location while you are at the home or office. For creating a new network location, you should

Sign out from your account then sign back in and try the connection.

5. Open The Incognito Window

The window (in the browser) that does not store any data or cache is known as Incognito window. This window particularly eliminates the need of clearing the cache on different times. Browser cache is certainly a definite problem that allows prevention of network connection. After opening the incognito window, you should try to visit a non-HTTPS website such as This website is non-secured and can be used without facing different problems. The benefit of visiting a non-HTTPS site is that it does not redirect the browser to the login screen. So, you can keep your data secure and connect to the public wifi page.

6. Look For A Secured Network

Most people find problems while connecting to unsecured wi-fi networks. Unlike public and open networks, secured networks contain specific encryption. If you type the password once and get connected, you are never required to do it again as it will be remembered by your system. So, always search for secured networks and perform browsing at a fabulous speed.

You should check your network settings and disconnect other DNS servers if they are connected. After reviewing your DNS network settings, you should try for creating a new network location. If you type http://localhost in the browser or type any non-https website in the incognito window, you can head over to the login screen. If you fail to fix the issue with these things, you should try the restart option. So, look for secured networks for maintaining a better, seamless connection.
