I understand the positioning of the antenna is a critical parameter (together with the quality of the router device). The antennas should be located in free air with distance to other equipment and above the heads of the public.

Hence I consider the built-in WiFi of the XR18 just a courtesy feature for very simple configuration purpose.

In a live situation I would use a router box on a stand, connected to the Rack Mixer by an RJ45 cable.

Not really. OSC is not Midi at all (other than Midi it transfers floating point values for the parameters.) Nonetheless it's rather light weight regarding network traffic. But it is rather demanding regarding the network quality, as missed packets are not detected, and faulty packets are just ignored.
