Which WiFi routers are compatible with the Smartgloves?

Router transmitting 2.4GHz or 5GHz

Most standard WiFi Routers which are compatible with either 2.4GHz or 5GHz should generally work with the Smartgloves. However, be aware that some 2.4GHz routers have shown connectivity issues and will only be stable on 5GHz connections. We are currently working on a software update to solve the issue, as more reports about different routers come in.

Please note that the Smartgloves can only be assigned an IPv4 IP address. E.g. The Smartgloves does not currently support IPv6 IP addresses. E.g. 2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334

Before buying a new router

When you set up your Rokoko motion capture products for the first time, if you already own a router, have a try with it first, as it might be sufficient for your needs. If not then please consider the following options (or similarly specced options that you may find on your own).

  • If you are also using the Virtual Production Add-on (HTC tracker / Lighthouse Base Station integration), and forwarding the data to a plugin (Unity or Unreal), you may want to consider routers suggested on points 2 and above, depending on how many Smartgloves you will connect.

  • If setting up at a conference, university or business hub / large office centre, with a lot of Wifi traffic, please consider a router from points 3 or 4.

  • If you need big range (25m or more) or are using the Smartgloves in an environment with many walls and large objects potentially weakening the signal, please consider routers from points 2 and above, depending on how many Smartgloves you will connect.

  • For enterprise or university users, please also consider a mesh network. → Feel free to email us at support@rokoko.com if you need further advise.
