5GHz is the key: before you come on site, make sure you have a device that is 5GHz capable. It will not matter if you “just bought it,” there are still PC manufactures that use 2.4GHz only devices to entice you with a lower cost computer. 2.4GHz is highly interfered with and may not do well in an environment like events. So much so, that a lot of companies no longer provide 2.4GHz in some areas of their facilities. You can get a USB dual-band wireless adaptor (yes another adaptor) which will grant to 5GHz if you only have 2.4GHz. If you are not sure what you have, you can likely ask your IT team to take a look and let you know.
