Hello.

To clarify, static vs DHCP will make no difference to the reliability of the laptop <-> iLive comms.

DHCP is primarily about IP address acquisition, once a lease has been granted to your laptop, the signal strength and reliability of the link will be identical to a system which has had addresses allocated statically.

If you’re worried about signal strength you should read the wiki on 802.11 specifically N which dramatically increases wireless cloud range.

Basically buy a ‘N’ wireless access point if your worried. The way in which the IP addresses are allocated makes no difference to link strength / reliability.
