I have just started to work for London company which provides iPads for some typs of conferences within UK. Those iPads connect to our own wireless networks and pull out the data from the local server. Yesterday, at one of the events, I noticed a strange thing:
Even though iPads were not indicated as connected to our closed wireless network they were working perfectly fine. The indication I mean are:
- iPad 'network wave' wasn't showing up
- when in network manager there was a circle spinning next to our network (iPads connect to this network automatically)
- network manager were not giving out any details providing by DHCP server
However when logged in to web management console of the access point all ipads were getting ip addresses which might indicate that it just the nature of iPads to behave that way from time to time.
Any ideas why this has happened?
