Not sure if this is what you are seeing. When I connect to a free Wifi hotspot, I have to accept the connection before I can start the Norton Wifi Privacy, NWP. NWP requires an established connection to work.
This will depend on whether you are required to sign in or accept conditions before the connection can be completed.
