Below is a re-post of my WiFi configuration, which works great. One key point is that I connect my MacBook running iLive Editor via ethernet cable, not WiFi. My iPads, naturally, all connect via WiFi. This has worked very, very well for me for almost a year now. I run my system with the MacBook/iPad combination only, no surface. Just love it. Maybe something here will help.
