Usage of NEHotspotHelper in case of captive portal will stuck at the authenticate state. As after connecting to the Wi-Fi we need to send the web request for authentication. At this state If the device is connected to the 4g the request goes over it otherwise it returns internet connection appears to be offline. While the expected behaviour is to sent the request over the connected Wi-Fi for authentication. Same situation occurs in case if developer use NEHotpostConfiguration manager in order to connect to the Wi-Fi.
