Unfortunately our information with mesh routers is very limited. We know that some users have gotten it to work with no problem while other users aren’t so lucky. For example, one of our bosses uses a Eero mesh setup at home with no hitches whatsoever, but another user having the same set wasn’t able to connect at all.
This leads us to believe that the routers used itself may not be the problem (although it very well could be), but other factors may be involved. When setting up your mesh, we would ask just to make sure you strategically place the nodes so that your devices are more likely to connect to the same node.
But you do bring up a good point in your second post. It is entirely possible that the first gen iPad pro may be a little old. Something you can do right away to help alleviate some of the lag is to go to our advanced settings on Astropad. To get there, on the Mac application, hold option while clicking on Preferences from the menu bar. If done successfully, you’ll see a tab called “Debug”.
From there, under Liquid Engine, change it to V2 and let us know if you see a difference.
