Have a look at this KB article:

Also you need to ensure that audio packets do not saturate the wireless network: avoid Dante Multicast streams or set up MAC Id / ACL filtering.

Bear in mind that for a standard FoH/Mon split + recording computer you can run the M-Dante card in switched mode, thus no need for an external switch.

It would be nice to avoid having to buy a separate gigabit switch for Dante, if the Asus would do.


You can find Gigabit switches for as little as 15 pounds. A cheap TP-Link TL-SG1008 managed 8 Dante systems 8 hours a day on our stand at ProLight&Sound this year.

Hope this helps,
