& There’s a Router Rebate on Our Favorite Rack Mixer!

Many Rack Mounted Digital Mixer Systems come with a built in Wifi router. For instance, Soundcraft’s Ui12 features one, and they are all terrible! The Ui12 is a great unit when you want simplicity, but we would always use with an external router.
Allan & Heath knew that any router they would include would make their unit obsolete far before its time, so the QU-SB doesn’t even include a built in router. Yet, for the month of October, due to their rebate, you can get your router for free!

Things to Keep in Mind With Your RouterĀ 

WiFi access points have antennas with different types of radio wave signal distributions – similar to microphone patterns. To optimize the best performance of your Wireless Access Point (WAP), place it in the center of the venue or on top of the tallest rack with clear coverage of the stage.

Also remember to hide your SSID. Hiding the broadcasting Identifier helps reduce the number of users attempting to connect to your system. Choose an SSID that is fairly easy for you to remember (and to type), and turn off the SSID Broadcast so your network isn’t hit with users burdening the system with incorrect passwords.

2.4 GHz or 5 GHz? The primary differences between the two frequencies are the range (coverage) and bandwidth (speed) that the bands provide. The 2.4 GHz band provides coverage at a longer range but transmits data at slower speeds. The 5 GHz band provides less coverage but transmits data at faster speeds. The decision should be made depending on deployment, venue space and other wireless devices utilized for your show.

General guidelines for selecting a WiFi router:

  • Good wireless coverage (802.11n or 802.11ac with ‘beamforming’ are recommended)
  • Dual band wireless frequencies (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz)
  • Auto wireless channel select, to help avoid any interference
  • Good security, such as WPA
