I have a router.  This router is even one from the PreSonus Supported Routers list, but I'm unsure how to hook the router up.  Is there any suggestions?  I tried connecting to one of the WAN (internet) ports on my router, and while this works it takes a very long time for my mixer to show up on UC Surface and it is actually laggy.  Any suggestions on proper setup?

It is suggested that when connecting any StudioLive AI mixer that you use only the network LAN ports on the router.  The WAN (internet) port on a router sits behind firewalls at times, and is designated to speak through gateways and external network connections to Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

PreSonus always suggests only using the LAN ports on your router at all times for proper communication.  For information on proper techniques and connection of your StudioLive AI mixer, please see the following links below.
