    I bet, most (if not all) of their customers don't frequent other locations.

    You're probably right. And, I think that has something to do with it as well.

    But, my daughter works at both of the locations that I visit most frequently and she's never had a problem connecting.

    Can you please explain how visiting more than one location would affect my devices' ability to get an IP address via DHCP?

    It should not.

    That particular coffee shop doesn't want you to visit. That's about all I can think of. They purposely block you, and only you. I would take it personally, if I were you.

    Does she use a VPN, like you do?

    I just assumed, two different networks, with both having the same SSID, would confuse something on the phone. Whether, it is a "helper" app (VPN?), or the OS itself? Something is messing up, but nobody else, that visits those locations, has the same apps as you do.

    I rarely use a VPN when I'm out and about and I certainly don't turn it on until I have an Internet connection.

    So, I went to Class Cafe today, ordered my coffee, paid via QR Code with my iPhone and found myself a table. As soon as I sat down I checked my iPhone and iPad. For the first time in over four years both devices got a DHCP assigned IP address right away. I was amazed.

    This is how it was when I first went in:

    I'm 47 and 48.


    And after more customers came in:
