No need look at the logs. Wireless is convenient for visual users, but for astrophotography users, it's a "siren song", best avoided.
I'd suggest that you get a serial-usb cable with an FTDI chip, and go serial between the laptop and mount.
When you are guiding, you are constructing a near-real-time, closed-loop control system.
Which is better, to include a communication layer in that loop that can have packet dropouts, latency, and even outright drops, or to use a high speed cable that is very reliable? Lots of posts on that here.
The visual user will seldom notice small reliability issues from wireless, but someone trying to guide, probably will. You may find examples of people who have made wireless guiding work (there is one I know of), but they will be exceptions.
Wireless for convenience, but cable for reliability when guiding.
Hope this helps!
