    Hey,
    Just got an Apple TV and I'm trying to connect it to a wireless network I've set up in my dorm. When you connect to the network for the first time and then try to browse the web, it takes you to a page where you register your device. I believe this is an issue because the ATV won't connect to Netflix, YouTube, etc or show up for airplay mirroring. Is there any way to fix this problem?

    Basically I'm in a college dorm and even after I put in the password, there's a login page.

    Thanks,
    wearmaize

    You'll probably have to register the product's MAC ID with your network administrators since there's no way for your Apple TV to display the webpage so you can approve it.

    Yep, or you could set up an adhoc connection on your Mac/PC so share its connection with the ATV. This is probably against your terms of use, but if it's wired I can't see how they'd find out.
