Update: According to @tylerc, iOS checks the following page on Apple’s site to see if WiFi requires login. The page was drawing a 404-not found, thus resulting in the error. With the page now working, the issue should be resolved

Settings > Wi-Fi > (Network…) > “Blue Circle Arrow”

Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and set:

HTTP Proxy to Auto

    LOL, you call that a fix Chris? I mean, it probably works but now Apple is collecting all of your web activity on their proxy servers. Privacy FAIL!

      That is not how auto proxies work. They detect if a proxy is found on the current network. Comment FAIL!

        I disagree!

          So auto proxy, is going through Apples proxy servers?

          I sure hope thats not what you actually believe…
