Has anyone discovered how to get wireless devices to reconnect without hands on work after wireless goes for down for a significant amount of time? For example an hour of wireless downtime.
it depends a bit from how your Wifi is acting, but you could check this:
So we tried that setting on a test downtime. As soon as the device lost wireless it was prompted with this pop and never reconnected on its own. If you hit ok, it will reconnect which is cool but end users would not know when to hit ok and they might close out of the box.
Would it work with astandard wifi like a cell phone hotspot? Just for testing…
Just to compare the difference the enterprise wifi and regular wifi due to different authentication mechanisms right?
It connected back to the hotspot after a hour with no problem
ok, that’s great. Now I would go down the route and check if something popups up in your Wifi Controller, when reconnecting is asked.
