Connecting Playstation 3 to xfinitywifi

I'm trying to connect my PS3 to a local Xfinitywifi hotspot. When I try to login to my account so I can use the internet I am immediately taken to a page that says the link has expired. This is beyond frustrating. Has anybody else had luck connecting a PS3 to an xfinitywifi hotspot? My phone and my PS4 and other devices have connected just fine.

Xfinitywifi is low speed and limited bandwidth and is not designed for game consoles to run on it.  Even if you get it working it will be a poor experience.  Why not connect it to your internet service at your house?

It works fine for ither gaming devices. I'm currently away from home but have an xfinity hot spot nearby.

Could be because the home connection counts toward the datacap limit if they are in an area that is subject to it ??
