Lab 4, exercise 1, step 3. Problem logging in to powerbi.com

Hi. I'm stuck on lab 4, exercise 1, step 3 Instructions say to publish the report, which I did with no errors, but it took a long time. Step 3 says "Once the report is published, go to http://www.powerbi.com and sign in using your account." So I go to powerbi.com and don't see a login. What I get is a yellow screen that displays marketing information. BTW, the powerbi.com link redirects to https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/ What's going on here? Thanks.

Update:

 

I think there was rendering issue on Chrome, now I'm seeing the sign in link and I'm able to sign in.

 

But now I get the following error:

 

Connection error
Your connection has been lost. Please check your network connection settings. As soon as your connection is restored, you can continue using Power BI.
 
How do I fix this?   Clearly I'm able to get online, otherwise I wouldn't be able to submit this forum message!

Further update, turned out to be a time issue. Fixed by updating system time in "date and time"
