Got my rig on order, bought the iPad, now looking to get what I need to hook up the ipad when it all arrives... so...

 

Given the list of compatible dongles but the recommendation that you hook up through a usb / ethernet adapter with a wireless router, what are you using, ie what specific products?

 

Make/Model for each would be helpful.

 

Equally, any combinations or inidividual products which have proved unsuccessful or difficult, ie ones to avoid.

 

Many thanks.

I use apple's airport express router. It is a small, and reliable router. But any router will work. I connect it to the board with an Ethernet cable and a Moshi Internet to USB adapter. This adapter also has a USB port to plug a USB drive into. So you can play music from a USB stick and be connected to your router, and therefore your ipad connected too.

My first foray into iPad mixing was with the Samsung wireless dongle which worked fine but we also use line 6 xd v70 wireless mics which can over power a small wireless network if the transmitters get close to the iPad. After some advice from Line 6 I got myself an apple airport express. Because this transmits also in the 5ghz band there are no problems with mic transmission interference and it works really well.

I should add that the wireless never interfered with the microphones at all.

To sum up, the apple airport express is the most robust solution but if you are not using line 6 wireless mics then any of the wireless USB dongles in the line 6 approved list will work fine.

I'm using one of the recommended Cisco dongels with almost no problems....a bit of turn off & turn on to kick in the communication...other than that it works fine.

I am very happy with the updated fader control as I almost stopped using the remote with the previous software....

I still do not understand why WiFi was not built in...

I use 5 tiny Sony cameras all with builtin WiFi in the rig...but the M20d needs a dongle.....a bit strange ????

In the interest of simplicity and reliability, I've plumped for the airport express route.

 

I assume the M20d is plugged in to the WAN port of the router?

The other advantage to the airport express, or similar router, you can use the 5ghz option to help avoid any issues with wireless devices should you have any. As well, it is a much stronger signal from what I have heard. I have not tried any of the USB dongles. Just word on these forums.

I appreciate the existence of this forum and personal experiences that help.
Iknowathingortwo: just bought the router cisco linksys e2500 and I find that has no usb connection, checking this forum I found out that I also buy a usb to ethernet adapter.
My question is: Does any usb to ethernet adapter I use in this case?
I hate that they have not included the wi-fi in the StageScape.
Thank you very much for answering!
PS: sorry for my English, I'm using google translator

Q: Which USB WiFi products are compatible with the StageScape M20d? 
A: The EnGenius EUB-9801, 
Samsung WIS12ABGNX (WIS9ABGN and a WIS10ABGN are NOT compatible), and Linksys AE1000 (AE1200 and AE2500 will NOT work)are compatible with the StageScape M20D. However, they may be discontinued at this time. We recommend using an Apple Airport Express and use Apple's USB to Ethernet adapter (UPC: 885909439560)It is also possible to use the USB to Ethernet adapter and a DHCP enabled WiFi Ethernet router.

Any usb to ethernet adapter should work fine.  I use an airport express and bought  cheap one on ebay and it works fine.  There is no need to buy the apple one which is five times the price!

I also say no need to buy the apple one, but you should consider one that has the USB port as it allows you to put a USB stick in and play your backing tracks or "between set" music, and leave the SD card to deal with only recording. I purchased one from Moshi. But I bet you can find one on ebay. Another option is a powered usb hub. They also work I have read.

To come back to my own thread with my own experience... I two usb to Ethernet adapters. The apple one works flawlessly, the other isn't recognised at all, so I'd suggest that unless someone knows that the one they are looking at definitely works, go for the apple one (as much as it pains me to tell anyone to buy overpriced apple gear!)

I am not sure if it is any cheaper than the apple brand, but Moshi is the one I have. No problem ever.

Hi guys, I use the Samsung WIS12ABGN/XEC adapter with the iPad 1 and it works great till my guitarist turns on his Line 6 wireless pack, I've looked at changing the frequency on the mixer but it only gives me the option of 2.4 ghz which is the same as his pack...can anybody give me some advice etc or should I go for a router rather than a dongle. Thanks in advance \m/

Hey Johnny

 

There are several methods to improve your situation.  The best "fix it once and never worry about it again" method would be to use a router set to run on 5GHz ONLY (such as a Belkin N600).  You'll probably find that your iPad will like this a lot better too. :)

 

Second best would be to get your guitarist's unit updated to v.2x firmware and run in RF2 mode ...    http://line6.com/sup...?st=0#comment_0

 

Third would be to turn on your dongle and then with the guitar transmitter turned off but the receiver turned on, scroll through his available channels.  You'll see red LEDs on the RF meter.  Pick the channel on the guitar unit with the fewest red LEDs on.

Thanks for that dboomer, I've purchased thei Belkin N600 so fingers crossed haha. Is there a way to set it at 5ghz or does it automatically give you the options in the drop down menu on set-up screen.

I believe that out of the box you get dual band. You have to go into the advanced settings and disable the 2.4g

Gutted, I bought the Belkin N600 USB adapter and the M20D doesn't recognise it :'-( will have a look for the router, strange how they aren't the same.
