I have been using Wayland for about 1.5 months, and it has been a great experience. Could even say perfect, until I was traveling with my laptop and had to use a Wi-Fi that required login.

The login prompt never showed up, and when I tried to enter the login page URL through my installed browsers (librewolf, brave, and chromium) the page wouldn’t load. I tried in another locale a few weeks later, this time the page would load, but wouldn’t load URL behind the “Take me online” button. This strategy has worked on my phones and previous laptops that would occasionally get this problem, but now even the browser method isn’t working.

Could it be the fact that my default browser is set to firedragon on xdg-settings? I deleted that browser a while ago. I will reinstall firedragon before I travel to test this.

Any other ideas I should try before my next encounter with these login Wi-Fis?

Please share the output of :
systemctl status NetworkManager
and
journalctl

Just a bullet in darkness :
try :

nmtui

and see whether you can connect through it or not

Also check radio option in nmtui
enable of anything is disabled :

I’m not sure but I think it’s one of those so-called “captive” access points, where they always send you to the login page whatever URL you type until you enter the password.

journalctl

I know what you are referring to, these were not one of those. You need to accept the prompt in these, then and only then will you be directed to the page.

However, the fact that the page doesn’t load when entering the URL manually is what concerns me, this should have worked.

can’t find any issues so far , it may take me more time to dig in the journalctl.
edit : Really bizarre, can’t find any issues so far, check the website using ping "url"
if not , maybe there is some network-level restrictions .

Please reboot .

Try using the capnet-assist package suggested in the Arch Wiki article here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/NetworkManager#Captive_portals. It appears to be in the [extra] repo so you can just install it with Pacman.

Or, try adding that NetworkManager dispatcher script suggested in the article. No extra package required, just pure systemd. :mechanical_arm:

Perhaps you might want to try logging in through a textual terminal browser. I personally prefer elinks, but there are several other good textual browsers.

One consideration is that logins at these portals are often validated using the devices MAC address. For this reason you should definitely disable Mac address randomization.

If you can connect correctly to the portal using your phone, you might be able to use its Mac address as a way to login on your computer by spoofing your phones Mac address.

The Reddit link below contains some information on these methods:
