Repurposed WiFi Access Points for use with SpeedQuizzing.
Repurposed Industrial alternative to consumer SpeedQuizzing Pocket Hubs.
Intelligently uses 2.4ghz and 5ghz frequencies, making interference less likely.
Mesh multiple APs to cover larger areas and connect up to 500 player devices.
One ‘Quiz’ SSID, meaning players and quizmaster handset can roam seamlessly between access points.
Are these units brand new? Generally No. To make them affordable, we source them second hand, check them over and configure / optimise them to work with SpeedQuizzing. We then re-sell them with a three month warranty.
Do I need to connect these Access points to the internet? No, they don’t require Internet, the Master device creates a Local Area Network (LAN)
Can I use Ruckus AP’s with SQ Pocket Hubs? NO, Ruckus APs are to be used as an alternative to SpeedQuizzing Pocket Hubs, NOT in conjunction with.
How much better is coverage than the SQ Pocket Hubs? In our tests, under normal conditions player devices seem to stay connected slightly better. But where these units really excel is that they use dual bands to intelligently deal with WiFi congestion and crowded rooms significantly better than the single-band Pocket Hubs can, plus they are infinitely more expandable.
Can I use one Ruckus device by itself? Yes. When configured as a Master AP it will work on its own or with multiple connected repeaters. But when configured as a Repeater AP it wont work by itself.
Do they need to be placed above head height? Bodies and other obstacles can inhibit WiFi coverage. For optimum performance in a room full of people, we definitely recommend having them mounted on stands, away from obstacles and above head height. When Wirelessly meshing multiple APs together, it is beneficial for them to be above head height so that they can have line of sight with each other. With clear line of sight they may work as far apart as 60 meters from one another. However, through walls, people and obstacles this can be reduced to a low as 15 meters.
Why is the reset button covered on the Master device? Because this will permanently delete the SpeedQuizzing Master configuration. Holding the Master AP’s reset button will erase the SpeedQuizzing configuration. Don’t do this on a Master AP unless you intentionally wish to permanently demote it to a Repeater AP. One Ruckus AP must remain a Master AP.
Should I upgrade the Ruckus Firmware from v 126.96.36.199.127? No, never do this. Doing so will stop it from syncing with other SpeedQuizzing configured Ruckus APs.
Do Ruckus devices require players to enter a 6 digit PIN to play SpeedQuizzing? Yes this is unavoidable but does make for super quick connections with minimal scanning time.
Can I use the same PIN every time? Officially no, not at this point but there may be a work around for this soon.
Can I purchase used Ruckus access points from elsewhere and configure them to work with SpeedQuizzing myself? You could try but we won’t be offering any support.
Mounting the R500 and R710 on Mic Stands or Camera lighting stands.
The R500 is very easy to attach to pretty much anything as it has slots in the back for plastic cable ties.
The R710 on the other hand has proved to be more of a challenge.
