I'm sitting on 8 thousand dollars of gear I can't use!. I have 2 words for presonus.. BETA TEST! I have 2 more words for presonus.. bleep AWSOME! So what gives? Why are there so many issues with networking? I have three things in play. An Ipad, a router, and a 328. The Ipad and router are best friends, the 328 is a problem child. If anyone has a router, an Ipad running Room Control, connected to a 328 please call me! 352-283-4041

Are you trying to use the WiFi dongle or Ethernet?

I'm just reading the book! I have no issues with the console and the Ipad.(slRemote) My issue is with the Ai speakers and Room Control. On the same network. You could be $100 richer if you can solve this. I'm 8k in this system, It's a 32.4.2Ai, 18sAi, 328Ai,. I'm not an idiot. I know that there is a $10 answer to a $100 question.

I want to use wireless. Who wants to run 4 Cat5 cables.(on top of the power and signal) That's not what I bought in too.

I wasn't suggesting you use Ethernet. I was just asking so I know how to proceed.

The easiest way to connect your 328 to the WiFi is to first connect via Ethernet to a computer that has the WiFi network you want to use registered. It sounds weird, but that's the only way to get WiFi settings into the speaker. Do all the speakers at the same time. You don't need long cables - I did this in my dining room with my router I use for gigs, the computer I use for gigs, and the speakers. Once they're all connected via Ethernet, open Room Control. On the main screen, you'll see a WiFi icon on the upper right. Click that. It looks like this:

Once in that screen, you should see all speakers that have WiFi dongles on the top half and all the WiFi networks your computer has connected to on the bottom half. Pick the network you want. I can't remember if this is it or if you click an OK button or something but this will put the SSID and password into the speaker. You can then unplug the Ethernet and the WiFi should take over.

Still no luck. It all seems to work until i unplug the ethernet. Then the speakers dissapear. I power cycled them but no luck. I really don't know what else to try. I've tried 5 routers! If anyone has the wifi working please tell me what router you are using. I have no problem with the Ai board and wifi or my Ipad running SL Remote. It's just the wifi in the speakers.

I use a LinkSys E5200. Checked their site and looks like they don't make them anymore but this is close:

Does your router have the 2.4 GHz channel enabled? The StudioLive AI speakers do not do 5 GHz.

AH! You may be on to something. I will make sure 2.4 is enabled. Also i noticed that no matter what i name the router it has a "guest" network. If i name it StudioLive, and scan for networks i see a StudioLive network with a lock and a StudioLive-guest network with no lock. I don't know what that is about. I've been using the router (Cisco/Linksys e2500) for 3 years with my 24.4.2 classic. I use 2 ipads at FOH. One for slRemote and one for Luminair which is my DMX over wi-fi. The console lives on-stage with a MacBook Pro4.

The guest network can be turned off from inside the router settings. I always do that.

Hi Guys,

So, I believe there are two things at play here.

1. You MUST have the latest firmware on your Speakers. This is very important to making sure your speakers are able to communicate with Room Control.

Firmware update process and verification of firmware update Video:

NOTE: Check out the drive compatibility statement we have below to make sure you are using a good drive that can correctly do the firmware updates:

**************

2. You want to verify you are networking your Speakers correctly. We have created a Knowledge Base Article below that can help you understand how to network devices properly.

http://support.presonus.com/entries/398 ... leshooting

NOTE: When connecting devices through network (ethernet hard wiring) means, make sure you are using a network unmanaged switch to improve connection. Some routers do not do network filtering properly and can cause a bad connection. Wireless connection on these type of routers are encouraged if used without a switch.
