Regarding wireless adapters for your DMX setup, when I first tried going wireless we used Blizzard Wicicles. My experience was that they were extremely unstable and led to an embarrassing lighting event when the president of the company who hired us was speaking.

I went to W-DMX units and never had a problem afterwards. They’re really expensive but work every time. I think their frequency hopping algorithm  in the 5Ghz band is implemented really well.

I’d love to know if these “wicicle-like” units are more stable now.

Best regards,
Bob Charest

We’ve had great results from the Donner wireless.  Been using 6 receivers every weekend for about 1 year with no failure.  These are the wired versions, not rechargeable.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions.  I have a lot to consider.  I've tossed around the idea of going with a $130 hardware controller like Chauvet Obey 40 or ADJ/Elation equivalent.  I do not own a laptop or tablet (one of the few people in America who doesn't......) but down the road if I do purchase one, I'd consider buying an Enntec dongle or equivalent and run the lights from there.
