Distance from a wireless access point will affect your WiFi speed and connectivity, as well. It sounds as if your nearest AP is in or over the high council room.

I have found that neighbors who are using the same channels also interfere with meetinghouse wireless. It seems that everyone likes to use channels 1, 6, and 11. We have no control over which channels we use, and our neighbors don't know or care how to change their channels.

Can you elaborate? I'm confused.

What are you confused about? My, not very eloquent explaination, goes into how the MR33 is, or isn’t configured. I’m guessing that might be the confusing bit?

I've received the same request. Can a leaders laptop, ipad or iphone be assigned to a static port? Would this guarantee wifi access even during peak usage? Is there a downside to doing this?

Probably.

No. The problem is bandwidth, not IP addresses. There's no way to assign privileges by IP.

Bottom line is there's no privileged users. Your only tools are filtering level and active AP location.
