[Micronet] AirBears with OS X Lion Failure

Stuart Damon
Dear Microneters,

I have a user who upgraded their Mac to OS X Lion.

Now when they select AirBears for their wireless access and open their browser, there is No Connectivity and No Way to Authenticate!

We have tried Safari, Chrome, and Firefox.

Does anyone know why OS X Lion would prevent AirBears connectivity, and a possible fix?

Re: [Micronet] AirBears with OS X Lion Failure

Ian Crew
Hi Stuart:

A few fairly basic questions, others might have better ideas:

1) Are they fully up-to-date (i.e. running 10.7.3 with all the patches offered by Software Update)?
2) Have they used Disk Utility to repair permissions and repair disk lately?
3) Does it still happen if they create--and log in to--a new user account on their system?

Cheers,

Ian

Re: [Micronet] AirBears with OS X Lion Failure

Hi Stuart,

I am able to use Airbears with my lion machines.

Can you make a new user on that machine that is having trouble, and see if the problem still exists?



Also, at what point does the system have trouble?

I usually do this, in this order:

1. Start mac machine and log in
2. Use the Airpoint icon to scan the available wireless networks.
3. I choose the AirBears AP and connect.
4. I then open Safari, and I am automatically redirected to the AirBear login page.


If the problem still exists if you log in as a new user on that machine, can you try a "reset Safari" in Safari?

If if STILL doesn't work after that, can you open the "Network Utility" application, and tell us what you see when you try to connect to the AirBears AP?

I sometimes have an issue with some machines, both Mac and PC of not having the Airbears authentication page open automatically when I open a web browser. The work around seems to be to simply type in the berkeley.edu url or airbears.berkeley.edu, at that point I am directed to the login page.

Re: [Micronet] AirBears with OS X Lion Failure

Jay Bryon
If the original page is HTTPS, I've noticed that the browser will balk (and rightfully so). 

I'm using Lion with no issues in general, although the auto-login window is quite annoying.  I just cancel that and use my default browser to make the authentication, so re-auth is painless later.  At last check the auto-popup wouldn't retain any cookies, breaking the re-auth mechanism, I'll have to see if that's still the case now that iOS 5.1 has been fixed for that same issue.

[Micronet] iOS 5.1 and AirBears (was Re: AirBears with OS X Lion Failure)

Has it?  I'm still seeing the same reauthorization pain as in iOS 5.0, and in an informal chat with a few of my colleagues, I'm not alone. Any tips/tricks for getting this to work properly in iOS 5.1 (on an iPhone 4 in my case)?

I heard rumors that the re-auth problem was fixed on 5.1 but my
experience has not proven that to be true at all - I still see exactly
the same behavior as before (i.e. no cookies are kept by the captive
portal assistant).

I've had varying results with iPhone and iPad users. I have an iPhone 4 and have been able to blissfully refresh a web page, tap on CALNET on the web page that appears and reconnect. Then after a few days, I need to re-enter my CalNet info.

I used Jay's instructions in the setup as Auto-Join on and Auto-Login off (least I hope that was right -- it has been working nevertheless and I've never had to change it). However others have had trouble with that and have had results with both on and both off so I'm not certain of consistency.

Re: [Micronet] iOS 5.1 and AirBears (was Re: AirBears with OS X Lion Failure)

Jay Bryon
In reply to this post by Ian Crew
Interesting.  I too have a iPhone 4, on iOS 5.1. 

One thing that I did do post-5.1-upgrade was reset my network settings entirely in the settings app, as I was having issues with my home wifi (this resolved that issue as well).  But I don't have any sort of a causal link between that and the corrected behavior. 

First things first, make sure the auto-login popup is disabled, and use safari exclusively to login.  That part I've been doing so long I admit I forgot to mention it. 

Disabling the Auto-Login is done by going to the wifi settings, selecting the blue arrow on the AirBears ssid to see it's specific settings and then sliding the Auto-Login switch to off. 

My setting stuck through the upgrade, but you may wish to check again anyway. 

If you want to try a network reset, here's what I did:

Settings-> General -> Reset -> Reset Network Settings

Please note that if you do this and something horrible happens, I'm just reporting my personal experience.
Just because my iPhone *didn't* catch fire, emit death-rays, or cause chronic insommnia doesn't mean your experience will be identical. 

You may need to re-enter wep/wpa keys for other wireless networks you currently have set up (not AirBears), so be prepared for that.

I have an iPad 3 and an iPhone both with iOS 5.1. I have had no problems logging into AirBears with either one. Logged in right now. No problems with Lion, either. Am I the only one?

It strikes me that that's probably the missing link.  I'll try that as soon as I'm on campus next.  (It's unfortunate that the auto-login popup is broken.  That's really convenient.)

Yeah, sadly it's just a subset of safari, which saves *nothing* as far as I know.  Which sort of makes sense, given the abuse possible out in the wooly wifi world.
