Username/password in nmtui-connect or network manager [new -current experiment]


I have been given another computer to salvage - however, this one is not a Chromebook so it should be a lot easier.

I have Slackware live up and running and I'm trying to connect to public wifi. I can either use KDE network manager or nmtui. However, the public wifi requires a username and password. I can't work out where to put these because there are so many options - WPA Enterprise, Personal etc - using LTS or tunneled. It's rather confusing.

nmtui-edit gives me similar options just in an ncurses. What's the best way to work out where to put the username and password, trial and error?

OK, I should have known. It was one of those situations where there was a login page. As usual,

Code:
#route
and then putting the IP in the address bar took me to the login page. This is the new machine. Seeing as my experiments with the Chromebook and -current didn't work, I'll be attempting to put -current on this machine. It doesn't have a hard drive at the moment, it ran off a PCIe SSD, so I'll probably be using an SD card for a drive since it's way cheaper.
