What exact login do you want to monitor? The login to the captive portal or the login into the router's setup? You could use the "Tamper Data" plugin for firefox or Chrome's console to see what POST/GET-Data is sent when you login. That data can then be used for the HTTP sensor...if we are actually talking about that :)
