Smart SDR for IOS connection question

Is it necessary for my Flex 6400 to be connected to the WiFi hub for it to see my radio?  Right now I have the rig connected to the computer and the computer is connected wirelessly to the network.  My iPad is also on the network, but cannot discover "Thor" (my radio).

I would recommend connecting your radio through a switch or a router instead of direct connection to your computer The issue bing that your computer only issues non routabke addresses to the radio so the radio has no outside access

OK, thought so.  Appreciate you setting me straight.  This community sure is great.  Everything is working fantastic right now at W6VZV after 3 days of Flex ownership, so I'm a little leary of changing anything but hey, that's what makes it fun, right?  I'll report back as to whether this does the job.

UPDATE:  Got it working very quickly once I connected the rig to the WiFi hub rather than to the computer.  Fantastic.  Thanks again.  The adventure continues ...
