    Im thinking about purchasing Apple TV but have one major issue i need clearing up before!!!

    I am currently at University here in the UK and everytime i log onto my mac i have to type in my username and password details to get on the internet! The network is an open network just the login page is the first page you see when you load up safari! pretty standard for universities. I wondered if any of you guys out there knew if its possible to use Apple TV on this sort of network or not. As soon as i login on that initial page my internet works for all programs, but it wont work until i log in!!!

    Any ideas as to if this would work will be appreciated

    Many Thanks in advance

    I don't think it will work. Can you connect with a VPN? The Apple TV may support connecting with that...
