I've always had a bit of an issue with this but it seems worse now I've changed phones. Basically the phone looks like it connects directly to SWR WiFi without going to the login page. The arrows even make it look as if data is being shared however it doesn't allow me to connect to the Internet. I've tried clearing the cache on my browser, even turning off and on again but still no joy. Any other advice?
Are you using an iPhone? Always happens on iPhone / IPad. I have found that opening safari and going to the login page (swr.passengerwifi.com) tends to work.
Never have a problem with Android.
Actually it is Android. In the past it has auto-connected to that page. I'll try directing my browser to that link and see if it helps. Thanks!
If android has memorised SWR as a wifi network, delete it from saved networks - that might also do the trick.
I've been having the same issue with my new Android and nothing seems to work. Was yr issue resolved?
Nope. My latest theory is that wifi only works on about 1 in 10 trains. Some of the old non-refitted trains work, and some of the new refitted trains work. If you are on a refurbished train try going to swrstream.com - sometimes that kicks it into operation.
