Question: iPad 2 mobileconfig file WiFi settings
At my job, I have iPad 2 WiFi devices on a legacy WPA2 personal network that keep losing connectivity at random intervals. The message that keeps appearing is that the wifi network's password is incorrect. I just have to toggle the Wi-Fi settings off and on, and it reconnects. The networking team says it's not on that end, and iOS devices don't log network activity so I can't even fully troubleshoot on the local end.
I've done all the standard troubleshooting up to erasing the devices and upgrading to the latest iOS, but it continues to occur.
I decided to create a mobileconfig file with the WiFi settings and implement it and hope that it works.
My question is how does that work? If the iOS device loses its network password somehow, does the mobileconfig file re-enter it? Does it somehow lock in the password?
