Use a wired connection. They're not affected by this latest problem. Using wireless for conference is a bad idea even in good times.
I'm hoping the conversation wasn't seen as a specific request for a specific situation I'm particularly i, it was meant to point out that there are any number of ways a stake is taking advantage of technology that has been in place for them. We are accustomed to it working the way it dones because it has been stable for so long, but when it isn't stable (like now), I could see disruption to meetings all over the place that might rely on the wireless technology. Just telling someone to plug in a cable doesn't work because we don't all have wired connections.
My Stake President and the 8 other Bishops he does PPI's for do not use a wired connection, and only a couple of them even have that access in their rooms. They have successfully done PPI's over Video for a year now... leading them to believe there is no need to modify their behavior.
So, if I knew there was a potential for the wireless to be down, I could then Inform my Stake President that he should use a wired connection, or they need to schedule to meet face to face in case something happens.
Only if the Church communicates with us can we spot a potential issue to avoid.
Again, I'm not referencing the unkowns, only the knowns
