Wifi blockage....Help Needed

By Lost in Cyberspace ·
I am very new to this field and I am already running into my first obstacle that I thought i could handle on my own but I was wrong. Here is the details -

I am at a resort that has Wifi

When I log on, I have to agree to their terms before I am granted access.

Once I hit agree, I am on the internet. problem solved it would seem.

When I try to hook my PS3 to the same Wifi, I cannot get on because it is obviously redirecting to the acceptance page.

I have tried to go through the Browser on the PS3 - It times out.

I have tried to make my Macbook pro act as a router - It failed

I have run an ethernet from my laptop that is on the Wifi to the PS3 - It failed

I have created antoher network and granted my mac access to the new network - It failed.

When I do a test on the PS3, I see the connection, I see the signal strength, and then when I go to close the deal, it boots me for a time out.

Any solutions?

I really want my PS3 up and running....

Please, I am not advanced in this stuff so talk to me like the idiot that i am...

Ask the resort for their tech support number.

See if the front desk can put you in contact with some form of tech support. It can be difficult to troubleshoot some of these managed connections without knowing the full details of how they are configured.

Or you could just enjoy what ever amenities the resort has to offer and forget your PS2 and other electronic connectivity while you're there...
