This time I’ve decided write first the solution and offer to the reader the option to read the full post or not.

Introduction:
Just recently I bought a Chinese Tablet with Android to my son Thomas and surprisingly I’ve faced this issue.
Well, how complicated could be connect a device to an Hotspot (Free Wifi) network for a person that has a degree in IT?
I tell you my list of attempts in order as I thought:

  1. Restart the device (favorite Microsoft solution)
  2. Open the default router page using the following IPs/URLs
    192.168.0.1 
    192.168.1.1 
    127.0.0.1 
    127.1.1.1 
    1.1.1.1
    http://localhost
  3. Assigned Google DNS
    8.8.8.8 
    8.8.4.4
  4. Open an HTTP website in Incognito
    http://example.com

After all those attempts failed I started thinking that probably the device was broken/not working properly but it was connected when we were at home…

Idea:
I should force the browser to do a refresh, I remembered that often appeared a page, I remembered that there was a combination of the two words Microsoft and Connect. Just I googled it and found the url
