Can hololens connect to wifi network with Captive portal authentication?


I am trying to connect my hololens to a wifi network with captive portal authentication, but once wifi is connected it doesn't bring up the portal authentication webpage, so no internet connection.
I tried launching a webpage in Edge but i am just getting a message that it can't connect to internet.

Any ideas?



  • Up to my knowledge, this does not work. We have tried the same, but failed to call the captive portal. We had to switch to another network not using a captive portal.

  • Not sure if I have the same setup, but I was having a similar issue on our guest network which requires usersname/pw login. The hololens was attaching to the open network, but Edge would not bring up the login prompt until I entered the ip address of the default gateway for the guest network (ie 10.x.x.x). Once I entered the ip address I got the login prompt and was able to connect to the network (Note: This doesn't work for initial Hololens setup)
