Thank you! I will look into it more and see what I can adjust. I appreciate the help.

Also on the XR16 turn off the internal WIFI broadcast.

I have my systems set up more or less like all the suggestions here.

As mentioned get a WIFI scanner app so you can see what channels are in use and set you router accordingly, I check every location I set up in.
Last I checked they were only available for Andriod though. That works for me I mix with iPads but my personal tablet is Android.

On 2.4ghz there are only three channels that do not overlap with each other, 1, 6 and 11. Guess what three channels are used more often than not!

5ghz channels do not overlap one another.

We use it for our outside services. I set it on top of the box that contains the mixer. The iPad is less than 50' away with clear view. I need to check for clarity of signal and the band but nothing else should be using it because it is only sending signal for the mixer. How do I verify the frequency is clear? I was under the impression that a router/modem would keep us from dropping signal.

Find a quiet place, turn down the lights, sit in a comfy place, light a candle, and repeat this mantra many times:

"I will never rely on wireless network access for mission critical services.  I will always have a wired backup."

I work as a network admin by day and a sound engineer on weekends.  I make my living doing this and the mantra above is the answer you seek.

Yes!  This should be screened next to the network ports on every digital console.

Wireless is a convenience. Don't rely solely on it. Always have a backup. You will use it.

Dumb question coming: if I hide the SSID, how do I find the access point with my iPad to connect to the mixer?

Under "other network" type in the exact name of the hidden network and it will 'usually' find it.

I've also found that it takes a little longer for an iPad to connect to a hidden SSID network.
