I just got a a GL iNet Beryl (GL-MT1300) and I’m trying to connect it to the public XFINITY network. Problem though is that it requires both a username and password but in the standard UI for my router I only have the ability to enter a Password after choosing the XFINITY SSID. I know there is also the open xfinitywifi but am under the impression that XFINITY is newer and preferable to connect to.
I did some digging and it looks like it’s possible using Advanced - Luci which is basically OpenWRT but I have no experience with OpenWRT so I’m a bit lost.
If I go to Network → Wireless I see a list of wireless options but don’t really see which one I’m looking to use. I don’t get why it only lists 802.11bg when it should be n/ac as well. When I click Scan under the Generic ones it doesn’t return any options. The one that’s currently connected to The LAN before Time 5ghz is what I want connected to XFINITY. I’m just connected to LAN Before Time temporarily so I could update the firmware etc.
Any help would be much appreciated.
EDIT: Looks like I may need wpad? wpad-openssl comes already installed. Assume I need to uninstall it and install full wpad?
