interconnection and operation w/ an Ipad

Hi,
I have been unsuccessful at getting my Ipad 2 to control my 24.4.2.

I have followed the online video to a T, but still no luck.

I've interconnected my 24.4.2 via the supplied fire wire cabling to a Macbook Pro running Snow Leopard. The Pro is interconnected to a Netgear WNDR 3400 with a new ethernet cable. . The Ipad recognizes the router. When the SL Remote app is launched, I can see the board connect icon as well as the offline demo icon. I connect via the former, see the controls, faders, etc. but nothing occurs when those are operated. I have also downloaded and installed the latest firmware. Mac settings have Airport on, and shared internet connection. The Mac has been assigned to this particular router and sees the connection to the router. Presonus Tech support has not answered my calls. I prefer speaking with someone other than submitting questions to them online. .

I clearly am missing something here, have searched the forum and have yet to make this simple thing work properly. A clearer explanation and instructions from Presonus would be great.

appreciate any and all help.
thanks!

Make sure you have VSL working with the console before opening the iPad app. You should be able to see bi-directional control between the two. If this is not happening then make sure your Universal Control is actually seeing the console and launching the VSL version of your console on the Mac. I have found it advantageous to have a totally separate wifi connection dedicated to the iPad with no internet onboard and some hi gain antennas on the router. Normally I would disable Airport so VSL only sees your dedicated router which I connect with an ethernet cable to the Mac. This makes the only wifi connection the one between the router and the iPad. Make sure the network you have created appears as the selected connection on the iPad settings menu. If all this is ok the SL Remote app should show your Studiolive as well as the demo one. Tap your studiolive once to select it then again to connect. Again you should check to see you have control .
I hope this makes it a bit clearer?
Cheers

Firewall in Windows 7 is a problem. Best to disable it prior to connecting. Mac doesn't seem to be a problem for me. Secure your network router with a password to stop unauthorised use.

had a similar Problem last week with my mbp and sl24. After about 1h tel.call with presonus Hotline, the supporter gave up, telling me it's a known issue. some ipad for whatever reason don't connect to vsl even when net is up between mbp and iPad. he mentioned s.th. about a New app-Release. hopefully soon.

turn off shared internet connection, your mac is acting as a second router on the same network
