Hi Gus bala,

Is your wifi getting connected even if the sign in page does not pop up? Is internet working?

Do you get a sign in page at any other place when you connect?

Is your wifi getting connected in home/office with out sign in page?

Can you send us the comparison video on your devices so that we can investigate?

You can upload the video on Gdrive or Asus web storage and share us the link.

Also check with the service provider for your broadband.

Let us know.

Hi Gus bala,
I'm a web developer. I understand your problem. This happens with some devices which don't have the url to redirect to login from the notification panel.

Possible/Temporary solution:
Open any browser, like chrome.
Type the url which don't run over HTTPS like http://192.168.1.1/
You will be redirected to the login page of the network.
Note: If the site's url is in https:// you won't get redirected the login page. because ssl connections cannot be hijacked easily.

Now @MAX_ASUS, Ask your team to look into the page for fixing this problem.
https://android.stackexchange.com/questions/186960/stop-navigating-to-google-com-for-wifi-sign-in
We need onclick on the notification, fire up a browser and redirect it to any non-https site. Hopefully create a url under asus.com that should run on http not https.
In this affected device, it is redirecting to some https site. But in our device, notification does nothing where it should do fire up the browser with http url.

Hope this helps others too!!!

Ah!!! Are you from technical team? With the questions you are asking, I guess not.
1. For public wifi network, mobile/any wifi device connect to it without asking for password
2. Some public wifi network, gives internet without any login.
3. But some will ask for mobile number where otp is sent and the user is authenticated like google's railwire which is available in railway stations. Some will hijack the http webpage to their login page like tikona, where they will authenticate users. For this third point, we will get internet only after we go through the process.
Hope this helps!!!
