Hi Alistair

R.E Best wireless A/P, it depends…

We’ve dropped multicast support, so the UDP metering should be handled fine by most access points in a single iPad environment with good wifi coverage.

Where things get tricky are in a multi iPad setup with poor wifi coverage. We’ve seen almost every A/P on the market have problems in this scenario. They stop pushing any traffic at all while a single client is out of range, and this can cause issues for the other ipad’s which are still in range.

The exception to this is the Cisco A/P we recommend – have a look on the iLive downloads page. Yes its expensive, but it also works where others do not !

So I guess it depends on your setup and the demand you’re placing on the A/P.

Hope this helps.


So what you are saying is that it realy doesn’t matter wich AP you use in a multi Ipad enviorment, because if one is out of range, the whole system will slow down ?

On Ilive this could be avoided using multicast, but this isn’t possible anymore on the GLD ?

So basicly…. If i would use more than one IPad, and one goes out of range, the other IPad is going to give problems two ?

Would this also effect the GLD surfice, as is noted in the Ilive notes of the AP selection document?

GLD all the way ;)
