I have some users (with laptops) that disconnect from the wired network connection at their desk (typically to go to a meeting), then reconnect to the network by enabling the wireless (while in a meeting). Several of these users are experiencing issues with Spark not automatically reconnecting when going between a wired and wireless connection, and vice versa.
Of course, I try to duplicate the issue on my laptop and everything works as it should. I have tried several different scenarios that include different time periods between going from wired to wireless and from wireless to wired, standby and no standby between switching connections, etc…
Currently, the work-around I have given users when Spark does not automatically reconnect, is to go the “Spark” menu and click “Log out”, then login again.
Openfire version: 3.6.4 (CentOS 5.3)
Spark version: 2.5.8 (Windows XP)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
