    Wouter, I opted for your suggestion, and purchased the TP-Link. I found it through Amazon, and the company that is shipping it is in my state. Should have it tomorrow.
    I noticed that the most recent firmware on the manufacturer website does show the IGMP ver 1&2 support, so the first thing I will do, is make sure the firmware is correct and start going through the utility getting Mac addresses inserted, etc.

    If anyone goes out to buy a new laptop in the future, don’t make my mistake. I failed to get actual specs on my built in wireless card, and found out later no 5GHZ. Never really occurred to me that I did not have it until I was upgrading another older laptop in the house, and my other family member shows the 5GHZ connection. Its even the same brand laptop as my beast, and I really can’t do anything about it at this point. (Digressing here…still beating myself up.)

    Since this TP-Link is only 2.4, it’s a perfect match. I will report my progress.

    Thanks for the suggestion Wouter.

    Hi iPad2 users,

    I’m interested to know what size (16, 32 or 64gb) iPad2 your using and what was you’re reasons for purchasing the size you did?

    Cheers,

    Gary.

    64 Gigabit, no 3G. I had no real reason for choosing the larger hard drive other then the possibility of additional apps and music – photos. I did not feel that getting the 3G model would make sense, as I would be using it mostly on my private network.

    Also 64GB, no 3G. Same reason plus the fact that you can’t put extra memory in later…

    Have fun Woutert, let us know how you get on.
    PS I have bought 2 so far, I also didn’t go 3G – if you happen to own an iPhone you don’t need it since they instated tethering on the latest update (just use your phone data plan, inevitably cheaper!).

    Got it working, worked like a charm. Musicians were *very* happy that they could just ask me straight away while they were playing during sound check. I just walked around between them checking with them if their mix needed some tweaking. I could just hear how it sounded for them and make it better than if I would have had to rely on their comments only.

    Great!!

    HI,

    On the last 4 shows i did with the ipad (version one) there was this problem. On all these shows the ipad stopped, showing “not enough memory”. the mixpad app was the only one running.
    restarting the ipad solved the problem but it is no fun. it happens almost always when setting up the custom screens. but can happen when doing mix SOF.
    I really feel that it is a problem with memory allocation (bug like a memory overflow ) and not that there isn’t enough memory.
    Every musician loves it when i stand next to them and make their mix so please A&H solve this problem.

    Kind regards

    Lieven

    Yes, the out of memory error is still an issue. IPad 2 with no other apps running. Closed app, turned iPad off, and restarted on two occasions within a two hour period.

    At my last gig it disappeared twice on my idontpad2 16GB. I’ll use it again tonight for an unimportant gig. We will see how it will behave again. I only used it 4 times until now.

    If it crashes I simply start and wait for everything to update again :(

    One thing that annoys me is that the initial update rate on channels is too slow. And it doesn’t update unless you visit the channel. This has nothing to do my wi-fi setup. I’m very anal when I setup my wi-fi at a venue. I always scan environment and pick the best available wi-fi channel. No auto-selecting.

    So to overcome, once the app is online, I have to visit/scroll everything at least once to make sure they received current information before doing anything. My Le1700 still sits and available in case of emergencies like app crashes. Unfortunately, it refused to update at all a few times and had to reboot idontpad2.

    I don’t recall if anybody from A&H commented about MixPad for ANDROID platform. Almost every current/upcoming Android tablet hardware(RAM especially) is superior than idontpad2. So… Another 100bucks I guess if it is happening…

    I also experienced app crashes while assigning channels in custom screen.

    Any idea if there will be any update any soon for mixpad?

    I don’t have a surface, I do everything from Le1700 and trying to shift to mixpad since last month as much as I can.

    A tap-tempo button is a must.
    If you have to deal with almost 64 channels(32 for house mix, 32 for monitor mixes) no matter how you design your customs and align channels, it is a pain in the butt to quickly get to certain channels.

    We have to give credits to yamaha stagemix app for quickly accessing to those channel groups. But bigger credits to A&H for making such an advanced mixing app. I’m hoping they will realize Android platform as an important venue and develop android version of mixpad with more functions.
    You can tell that I’m not an apple guy.
