I am using Mac OS X.

I am at a hotel where a website login prompt pops up when you connect to their open WiFi. I typed the wrong password and saved it on accident. As a result, it no longer prompts for the password but instead times out trying to connect.

Things I've tried so far:

  • Completely clearing my cache, passwords, cookies, everything.
  • Check my keychain access, no keys stored there.
  • Deleted the hotel from my network preferences
  • Rebooted my computer.
  • Checked my saved passwords in FF, it wasn't there.
  • Booted into Windows with parallels, same problem.
  • All other browsers same problem.

Any ideas?

What OS are you using? – paradd0x May 31 '11 at 18:12
When he said Keychain access and parallels, it identified it as MAC OS X for some people, I will edit his answer so it is more clear @ThiagoM. – David May 31 '11 at 18:18
Thanks David. It is a Mac. – Trip May 31 '11 at 18:48

It would of saved your password and using a different browser should do the trick. What you are describing though doesn't sound like anything on your end. It sounds like the hotel wifi is rejecting you on their end. I'd talk to the staff.
