[Discuss] Acer Aspire One Ubuntu networking issue

Thanks Richard,
That is what I thought at first, but her problem is not solely related
to MIT. Usually, we can get the MIT signin form on a browser. Usually,
MIT will give the system a 10. address until the user signs in, and then
gets an 18. address. In her case, most of the time the WiFi would not
connect at all except to the BLU router. But, based on her explanation,
she had the same problem in other open WiFi situations. One thing I
might have done would be to walk over to a place like Panera that has
open WiFi and test it, but we were really slammed.
