Most public WiFi use a HTML/HTTP based login.  That might be difficult to code.

If the public WiFi is using WEP or WPA, then it should be straightforward to make it work.

The WiFi shield is irrelevant.  It doesn't have magic code that understands all the different ways someone could write an HTML login page.  That's going to be up to you.

This means you can learn exactly how it's made and use its design as the starting point for your own circuits.   Requires and Arduino board (not included)   Operating voltage 5V (supplied from the Arduino Board)   Connection via: 802.11b/g networks   Encryption types: WEP and WPA2 Persoanl   Connection with Arduino on SPI port   on-board micro SD slot   ICSP headers   FTDI connection for serial debugging of WiFi shield   Mini-USB for updating WiFi shield firmware.
