    I tried like 4 different Wireless Routers. And ended up ( after A&H published the list) with the D-Link DIR-815. They all worked well in home / test environment. Some better with multicast then others. But in the end when it came to live venue situation, they all started loosing connection constantly. During soundcheck everything worked fine, but the moment the people get in, and the real deal begins, the problems start.
    I think this is for the main part caused by all the people having there 2,4Ghz Mobile and today has there Wifi / Bluetooth … turned on.

    The moment I switched to the D-Links 5Ghz band, all these problems disappeared. I cannot say that the connection does not drop anymore, but its 10 times more stable is in the 2,4 Ghz band.

    As said I tried 4 routers out of the A&H shortlist. From that list the D-Link DIR-815 is for me absolutly the winner

    Subject: New TL-WR2543ND question on IGMP multicast streams.
     
    Good day, and thank you in advance for reading.
     
    I am a current owner of the WR1043ND.  This router does support multicast
    streams IGMP.  Since this only uses the 2.4 GHZ band, I am interested in
    your new model as it works in the 5GHZ band.
     
    My question is, will the new WR2543ND support IGMP multicast streams? 
    In particular, a group address of 239.0.1.1?
     
    I could not find a setting in the user guide on your site for multicast
    streams for the new router, but the WR1043ND does not have it either.  There
    was a firmware upgrade to support it at a later time.
     
    Thank you for your consideration.
     
    Sincerely,

    I’ve had one laying around for a while that I just set up to try out with the rack and computers. Had it running with the rack, a desktop, X61 tablet and iPad2. Used it with Multicast enabled and MAC filtering and it seemed to work good as far as the metering went. Had everything in the basement but wandered upstairs with the iPad to try it and it worked well when I was up there. I hit a dead spot on the way back down as the iPad lost the connection but it reconnected fine.
    I’m finding the iPad wireless not quite as robust as the tablet but I haven’t tried it in a larger open space yet. I think it was getting better signal running on N on the D-link than G on the Linksys router I’ve been using. The Tablet is G only and still seems to get a better signal though. If you have a DIR 655 available you might give it a try, if not maybe the DR815 would be better with the 5 Ghz as several have mentioned.

    P.S. Anyone know where the iDR racks are supposed to have their MAC address listed? I couldn’t find it on mine and had to come up with a command line program called Arp to get the MAC to enter in the router. I’ve got it now but was tearing my hair out trying to find it.

    P.P.S. Well I did finally manage to overload the DIR 655. Running Editor on the Desktop and Tablet, Mixpad and Jump Desktop into the desktop from the iPad. the meters starting freezing randomly in the two Editors and MixPad. I still had control from everything, just the meters were going AWOL. So either I was brute force overloading the wireless or the Multicast on this router isn’t up to standards.

    Purchased and tested the TP-LINK TL-WDR4300 N750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router. IGMP proxy supported.
    Replacing my TL-WR1043ND which does not work in the 5GHZ spectrum.
    Multicast on my rig is always turned on whether I am using the T112, or just a laptop and iPad.
    Mixed a show with just the laptop, and used iPad throughout a three hour show. Laptop also connected wirelessly. I had to restart the iPad once due to distance, approx 300 feet.

    Maybe I am just lucky, but my connection issues using the old router have always been related to wireless traffic on the 2.4GHZ band.
    The TL-WDR4300 is under 90.00 in the US.
