    Default Connecting to my university's wifi? Login/Password problem

    I have free wireless, but it is my university's wireless network, and it requires going through a login/password page to connect. This works fine on my computer--When I open a browser, it directs me to the login page; I just type in my login/password, and I'm connected.

    However, I don't know how to get this to work on my nook.

    The nook detects my university's wireless:

    It says:

    Signal strength: Excellent
    Security: None

    The, I click "Connect" ---> "Connecting to ______" ---> "Connected" ----> Then, it goes back to "Disconnected" after a couple of seconds.

    I guess this has something to do with the fact that my wireless requires authentication, but does this mean it can't work on my nook? Or is there something I can do to get around this? =(

    Anyone else in college having this problem?

    Only possible idea I have is to copy the universtiy's log-in page as your homepage for the Nook so you can log-in during the brif time it is connected.

    It's also important to note that because the device can now access the Web, you can log in to Wi-Fi networks that require authentication via a Web page. Nook owners have been asking for the ability to access more public Wi-Fi hot spots since the e-reader's launch.
