    Is there an easy/inexpensive way to go from my switch (in e1.31) to one of your controller wirelessly?

    It's not something I would recommend doing, but if you need to you'll have to keep some things in mind. Mainly when you use a wireless connection with sACN data that is multicast it usually breaks things. The simplest way to overcome that would be to use unicast for all sACN data and try to minimize the traffic over any one wireless link.


    In terms of actually setting it up you would need a wireless network (normal wireless home router would work). Then you need to buy another wireless AP that can act as a WLAN to LAN converter. You then plug the PixLite into the wireless access point using an ethernet cable like normal. Something like this would do the trick: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=200_634&products_id=14831

    thanks for that information. it would just make things easier, but not required.
