Can Dante operate over a Wi-Fi network?

No. While possible in principle, the practical limitations of current wireless technology (802.11a/b/g/n/ac) render reliable audio performance, with ultra-low latency unachievable. For this reason, Dante Virtual Soundcard and Dante Via will not recognize wireless connections for audio data.

However, you can use Dante Controller to control and configure the Dante network over a Wi-Fi connection. Dante Controller must be version 3.10 or higher for Wi-Fi support.

To enable this feature:

  1. Open the Configure Dante Interfaces dialog.
  2. Uncheck ‘Use shared Dante interface’.
  3. Select your wireless adapter.

The wireless adaptor must be connected to the Dante network.
