Alexa Mini WiFi issues LiveGrade

Wed May 09, 2018 2:58 am

Hi there,

I been trying to work with the Alexa Mini’s built in WiFi and Promforts LiveGrade the past few days. I really like the idea of grading a look, apply that and access it later in post via the metadata.
On Set I use Teradek link to establish a WiFi network to then connect the camera(s) (in WiFi client mode) to that WiFi. But that seems to be very unstable.
Question 1: What Network Settings for the WiFi Router will work best to connect the cameras? 2.4Ghz, 5G?
I found that the Mini’s WiFi rage is not that great. Is there anyway to enhance the cameras WiFi range for example with another antenna? Or is that antenna only for the wcu units only?
Thanks for answers in advance!

Dear Sim,

on ALEXA Mini the WiFi Antenna sits underneath the carbon shell of the body, right about here beneath the ALEXA Mini logo:

What are the experiences with other routers?
