I had an old iPad 2 lying around and decided to fire it up to test out a webpage I was making on my computer. Both devices are on the same LAN, connected using the same wifi ESSID and on the same subnet:

  • Web Server IP:
  • iPad IP:
  • Laptop IP:

It's a Google Wifi with excellent signal strength.
