I just remember to turn my "heartbeat" function on my apex, only to find out my wireless is jacked up.

I don't think its my router. I might try hard wiring cat5 to the controller. Anyone else have spotty issues using apex wireless?

i want to say 5ghz, I've never had an issue accessing the apex when needed. It might have been my internet service. There have been problems with my electricity lately, All my stuff is on UPS so it stays on unless Im outta power for longer than 1 hour.

Just weird to see so many disconnections.

Seems like everyone is using wifi nowadays right? Or yall using cat5?

"The Wi-Fi interface in the Apex and Apex EL supports these wireless communications standards: 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n (2.4 GHz only); 5 GHz Wi-Fi protocols 802.11a and 802.11ac are not supported. Almost every wireless router offers 2.4GHz wireless service. If you have a dual-band router which supports both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, the 2.4 GHz band must be enabled."
