Hello all...I'm new to the forum, as I usually research and find solutions to whatever issue I'm having without having to bother anyone. However, I'm genuinely stumped here.
Here's my need:
Private wireless network for remote operation of various hardware and software applications. Some examples include VirtualDJ (controlled via VirtualDJ Remote from an iDevice), the Behringer X-Air mixer, VNC Client, and so on. I have used a NUMBER of single and dual band wireless routers in an attempt to correct the issues I'm experiencing, but nothing has worked.
When I test the equipment before everyone arrives, everything works flawlessly. I adjust the controls at ridiculous rate, just to make sure everything works well and it isn't a software issue. As soon as the crowds of a couple thousand people show up (football stadium, gymnasium, auditorium, etc.), the Wifi connection itself becomes intermittent, and data transfer between devices slows considerably or drops altogether.
No one else is connected to this wireless network--there are NO channel conflicts unless people are sitting in the audience with their hotspots turned on (and in this part of the country, I seriously doubt that). Is the issue being caused because so many phones are being sent the SSID? I've tried high-end and cheapo routers, and it seems as though the issue is prevalent, regardless.
Thanks for the help!
