Yes, I was using Firefox to open the web page from a no-security network
(which asks first that you agree to some conditions). 

As I previously mentioned, I connected routinely to all of these
networks under Ubuntu 8.04. After I installed 8.10 (installed from
scratch - not upgraded) I then configured all the connections exactly as
they had been under 8.04. But now it won't connect to any of them
(except my home network which uses wep). It tries to connect to one
system with no security and the other system with WPA 2 Enterprise and
PEAP. I was able to get it to connect with the no security system (that
is where Firefox comes in - you have to accept an agreement to connect).
Under 8.04, the laptop connected automatically to all of these networks.
Not sure what has changed. I use my other Fedora 8 laptop to connect to
all of these networks so I know they have not changed.
