start page has back button that goes to network detect page, which then lies and traps you

Bug Description

notes below assume you're on linux, but problem exists elsewhere too (at least on osx)

to reproduce, remove the current machine in control panel, verify that you *do* have network connectivity.

then close and reopen control panel, click on 'sign me in with my existing account'.

sso client opens, and has a 'back' button at the bottom left, taking you to the network detection screen.
If we do have network, we shouldn't need to go there.

if you click on 'back', the page lies and says you don't have network, and it traps you there, with no 'forward' button.

suggested fix: no back button in the login screen if we have network. ignore the lying and trapping.
