You could try changing the frequency to see if you can get better performance. Also keep in mind ...

General steps: I am not familiar with that specific router so I listed general objectives. Is there any central logging in place now at the gateway IP that you can leverage? Is the system logging to a SQL database? Is there a central authentication server, radius server? If yes, does it return a unique id or you may want to use the login id. You have to ...

Without even looking at the datasheet it is obvious that one of them is a SOHO category device while the other one is aimed for enterprise. That is exactly where the price difference comes from. You can expect much better performance from Aruba.

Windows clientes won't support EAP-TTLS out-of-box (you'll need to install a software like secure2w), unless they have Intel wireless cards. So, the real problem is how your passwords are stored. If they are on Active Directory, then you'll ...

Wifi doesn't use any sensible type of collision detection, and there are only 3 non overlapping channels. It is notoriously bad for something like an event with lots of devices in an open area. It can be mitigated slightly by very strict coordination of APs and their channels but its unlikely that you'll be able to just turn up and stream video reliably. ...
