Can't connect in a shared system

I bought my second tidbyt for work, which is a college. Since the college system needed an email and a password it wouldn’t work.

I am experiencing a similar problem. How does one connect the Tidbyt to the WiFi on an Internet network that requires a user to log in with a username and a password (Instead of just connecting anonymously to the Internet by having a password for a WiFi network) ? This is important to make the device useful at my workplace.

What about via hotspot? Not exactly the actual solution, but it should work in the interim. Right?

That is what my IT guy did, he set up a hot spot. It helps that I am next door to IT.
