wifi hotspots and Blackberry playbook

Has anyone found the trick to logging a Blackberry Playbook into a comcast wifi hotspot?  I enter my user name and as soon as I touch the password field my user ID gets erased.

Re: wifi hotspots and Blackberry playbook

Whenever I tried to log in to xfinity wifi a floating bar would appear with links to the terms of use, and obscure the user ID field.  I typed my comcast email in anyway and when finished the floating bar moved and I could see my ID, but when I touched the password line to enter the password the ID got erased.  Finally I tried entering my password first, then my user ID and that worked.  All this has to happen before I even start the browser, it's part of the wifi connection setup screen.  It's a remembered connection now, so this should be the first and last time I need to jump through that hoop. Smiley Happy
