If you're able to post or PM me your Eye-Fi Card's MAC address, I can make sure that your card is properly registered with the Devicescape EasyWiFi service.
First, as I understand it Easy Wifi is a separate company/service that has been integrated into the Eye-Fi cards, correct? How do I find out what my log-in and password are from eye-fi so I can log into the Easy Wifi service directly (i.e. without using the Eye-Fi Center).
That is correct. The EasyWiFi technology is made by Devicescape and integrated into the Eye-Fi Card. Because the service complements the Eye-Fi Card, it must be used with the Eye-Fi Card and as such, it is not the "generic' EasyWiFi service provided by Devicescape for other mobile platforms. The only way to login to these accounts is through Eye-Fi Center on the desktop or Eye-Fi Web/Mobile Center at http://center.eye.fi
on a smartphone browser.
Second, I think this is an Easy Wifi question, but might be a Eye-Fi one. I want to be able to connect to a wifi hotspot (that's at my office) that is an open network but requires a username and password authentication on a browser web page. How do I do that?
For splash screens that require specific handling with account credentials, and even complex "agreement to conditions" flows, the network in question must be supported explicitly by EasyWiFi. Keep in mind that EasyWiFi is a public hotspot service, not a privately-managed access point authentication one. In your case you may have an easier time talking to your office IT staff and asking them to "whitelist" your Eye-Fi Card's MAC address and not require splash screen authentication for it.
