WiFi works everywhere but at airport hotspot

Recommended Posts

Dell Vostro 1320 with Win 7 Pro 64

I have no problem accessing the internet via WiFi at home, Starbucks, McDonalds, and most public hotspots. But I cannot get my laptop to redirect properly at SFO airport. It used to work and I can get on with my phone set on WiFi, so I know WiFi works there, but my laptop won't re-direct properly.

When I click on the SSID and connect, I get multiple bars on my WiFi RSSI indicator. But when I open a browser, either IE or Firefox, it says internet is unavailable.

It is hard to troubleshoot because it only fails at SFO airport; it works everywhere else. I worry about messing up my WiFi connectivity everywhere while I try to fix this one location

I suspect maybe there is a DNS error or similar broken look-up link, but I don't know how to fix it
