I got also a range extender in the WLAN here. I can't connect to the FileMaker servers when sitting on the range extender network - I have to select the other, original WLAN and then it works.
I believe that it's because of the different networks (other IP) - and forgot about it (always changing networks..)
Well, I think you're right. The Ipad seems to read the range extender as being the same network. Filemaker seems to know that it's a different network. and there is no place to change it on the ipad, since it thinks it's the same network.
It works great on the original network, but the problem is that we need to to use the range extender, for our filemaker, because where we need to use it is in the "dead spot".
Thanks for your response!
We seem to be having a similar problem. We upgraded our wifi to a mesh network configuration with several nodes throughout our 30,000 square foot building. Still though, when an iPad goes into an area where it switches from one node to another, Filemaker freezes up and loses connection. Does anybody have any suggestions on how to get Filemaker to act more responsive in an extended range?
