I live in Bangalore India.

My ISP is Hathaway

On windows internet explorer, my ISP redirects me first to their homepage and I need to login. After that I can use internet without any issues

But on ubuntu I do not have IE. And it does not redirect with anything else

What can I do?

Have you tried Firefox or Chromium? – Mitch Jul 18 '13 at 9:38
Good grief. How can one get HTTP-level redirecting so wrong that it only works in IE... This is a fault of your ISP. Bug them to get this fixed, really. – gertvdijk Jul 22 '13 at 11:04
You should have a look at their interface. You will puke. No hopes man. No chance of improving at all. I took it because it was too cheap for the speed but then it comes as a package. Getting a wifi modem in a while. After that I do not have to bother at all. – CivFiveAddict Jul 22 '13 at 15:26

The issue was that the server would not redirect me if I was not using IE

But it is resolved now. I got IP address that I had to go to directly to login

Thanks for reading though
