Monday 9/24 update on iOS 6 Wireless Issues
Message from firstname.lastname@example.org
Just an update on the issue with that 3Com site which contacted me last week….
I’ve not heard back from this guy, despite several emails to him.
Another IT guy with a 3Com infrastructure also contacted me saying they were running into similar problems: interestingly, when they disconnected the 3Com APs from the their switch, everything worked fine. It turns out, THIS network is using the H3C gear that 3Com had started to license and resell before the HP acquisition – this was NOT legacy 3Com WLAN equipment.
I passed onto him a comment sent to me by an HP guy, speaking unofficially: he says there is a known issue related to this for the H3C equipment. He didn’t elaborate because it’s not his area of expertise.
I assume that means if folks reach out to their HP tech support contact, they should be able to resolve this, assuming this known issue is in fact what’s messing up the Wi-Fi conection.
My impression is users at this second site did NOT have problems connecting to OTHER – not 3Com/H3C, but I probably need to recheck my notes on that.
