Connected to Hotel WiFi but Unable to Get Login Splash Screen? Here’s How to Fix It!

There’s a reason why some people can’t connect to hotel WiFi. This usually happens when they’re using devices that are not computers, nor smartphones. We’re talking here mostly about streaming media players (Chromecast, Roku), gaming consoles (Nintendo, Xbox, Playstation) and e-readers (Kindle, etc.).

The main reason why it’s harder on such devices is that almost all hotels nowadays use a WiFi sign in page.
