What could be some reasons appium automation tests pass on home wifi but fails on work wifi? What should I look out for? Anyone experience this? This is really confusing. When I run it at home all tests passes, but once I use the work wifi a few tests would fail. The only difference is I'm the only one using the home wifi and the work wifi has many devices connected to it. Any ideas?
If I was the network engineer of your work, one "easy way" to create this situation is to block requests from your tests - causing timeouts. I could even do it randomly, just to make your tests even more inconsistent.
In a less extreme case, you have to consider that you are in a different network and maybe your tests are fragile for it. But we cannot evaluate more precisely without the error messages, network configurations, etc.
