Dear Wemo official supporters,
Belkin - please eductate your supporters better. I see to many " fib " suggetions on how to solve issues that has nothing to do with networking or wireless to make any kind of sense.
2nd my Wemo is doing the same as Up2nogd's after latest firmware upgrade.
Now I have narrowed it down too:
1. I delete the App from my iOS device
2. I re-install - then it works
3. It will work UNTIL I access (or wemo app is running) on an EXTERNAL connection (ei 3G/4G connection) - there it will work once.
4. Once back on the home network - WEMO is not longer detected
On my Android I have no such issues - it works all the time. So it is some iOS code vs Wemo that is bugging them down.
It is embarrasing (PERIOD) - my WEMO switch has not worked since the past 2 firmware updates on iOS devices.

and to add insult to injury
now I just entered my office - and my wemo switch had turned my heater on (500w heat)
I had not asked it to turn it on. I had a suspision it did so before but have never caught it in the act - but this time I came up - and saw my heater was on. Rules are set to turn on for 10min at a time max (12 min in software rules gives 10 min IRL)
I will promptly remove my WEMO and replace it with a more reliable brand - this is getting scary. It could blody well set the house on fire.

Six WEMO switches and one INSIGHT. All will not stay connected and show "Not detected" on my three iOS devices (two iPADS, one Iphone 4S) and on Android smartphone all with latest app installed.
These devices have all worked "well" for the last year by preventing any Belkin updates to the switches.
Have scoured the internet looking for suggestions. Tried them all to no avail. Switched routers out and all other WIFI devices are functioning perfectly.
Would like to tell you the firmware but can't as the devices won't stay on line long enough to get into the WEMO app and dump the information.

Not sure if this will help but on my 'Virgin Media' router I set the settings as in this post.
The gist is to set the following on my router.
enable 'multi-cast pass through' and disabled 'IP flood detection'.
Not sure if can change these settings on your router but these changes definately fixed the issue for me.
By the way, I would have thought Belkin support would have picked this suggestion up to try or check but they seem totally inept at suggesting things apart from totally uninstall and reinstall everything and cross you fingers.
Someone has even suggested to Belkin support a 'Router sttings and fixes page so that people can do quick searches for fixes and changes that people have done on their routers. Total silence.
You would think they would jump at the idea as they would then have a database for all the different types of routers out there.

My Unifi APs are both set to allow multicast packets. Neither one of them has control for IP flood.
It really seems to point back to the WEMO 1.13.4 setting something in the switches that is causing the problem.
