I read many topics and didn't see anything that specifically fits this experience I've had with my G50 so I thought I'd ask some experts to get their opinions on it.
So to start with.....I bought this unit about 2 yrs or so ago.......gigged a LOT with it.....only issue I ever had was the battery door broke and luckily I bought the extended GC warranty and they fixed it quickly and sent it back. I also had to replace the cable one time too but that was expected with so much use.
Anyway.....I notice that when I use it near my laptop or any other wireless device in my house they disconnect from the router. Not really a big deal......just happened to notice it and noting it here. Recently the band I perform with purchased one of those Mackie interface/boards that communicate with a Ipad/Iphone and they started running sound with it. The first night we used it there were constant disconnects with the devices and the sound board......and the router was a few feet away from me and my G50. I told them about my experience at home and the next gig they changed the router to a "5 band" setting and they had no more connection issues. But now I notice that for a split (and I mean split) second I receive drop outs in my signal. It's as if I flub a 1/8 note while playing......it's there....bam its gone.....it's there....even though I know I played it!!! lol Now this happened one other time to me.....at an outside event I played one a Warrior Run event and the production was provided. At the time I was running a big rig (I'm a bassist) with a preamp, power amp and a 810 cab. Anyway the power amp was a NEW Crown 1500w amp......and with all that stage I had it pumped up.....and that day I got those same type of drop outs. I thought it was the amp.....so I sold it (and the preamp for safe measures)! lol Well now I realize it wasn't because the production was the same setup as we have now with these Mackie/Ipad setup (the band got the idea from that event). It HAS to be related to the router/Ipad communication. It does it no where else.....and if we use the old wired systems (100's of times now) there are zero issues ever.
So how do I proceed? I can try random channels on my G50 but is there an easy way to determine what channels may work better? If I can't figure out a solution do I have any other options other than selling this and buying something else (which I REALLY don't want to)?
Thanks for any help!
