My university has an unsecured wireless network. When you open the browser, you're brought to a page where we input our account information and then we can use the internet.

When I'm on OSX, airport shows that I'm connected to the network, but the browser never loads the login page. It just sits there, saying it can't locate the server.

However, when I restart and load XP with bootcamp, I'm able to log on just fine. I can then restart and go back into OSX, and airport will allow me to load the page just fine.

The only way to properly log on is to first do it in XP, restart, and then do it in OSX. If I try in OSX first, I'm not able to gain access to the login page.

Can anyone help?

I've tried with both Firefox and Safari. Firefox keeps giving me the "waiting for reply" message, safari just says it can't find the server. Sorry, I should have said that in the first post.

Do you have specific DNS settings or a self-assigned IP address?

This may be way to simple but try bookmarking the page that it pulls up first and then next time it doesnt work try launching it from bookmark.
