I turned off dhcp on my router and tried my using my dhcp\ad\dns server again and it started working good again. I added a ca and I think the network needed time to propagate or something is the only reason I can think of as to why my devices wouldn't connect. So all is good except my smartphones, wifi thermostat and echo dot won't connect to the wifi now. I think its because the devices don't have the needed certificate to connect but i'm not 100% sure. Can someone please confirm or unconfirm this ( they connected before using the server). Also is there a way to Join Android phones to a domain or must I use a vpn to connect? I don't have to have the devices connected to the domain, but it would be nice if possible, I just need them to connect to my wifi. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
