I also experienced this problem on Ubuntu 17.10. Tried to connect to a wifi network, that utilized a captive portal, failed miserably. The DNS redirect to the captive portal would not occur. Manually overwriting /etc/resolv.conf with nameservers other than "" got me to the captive portal login page. I spent a few hours on vacation trying to workaround this. Really unfortunate problem.
