Wireless Connection Issues

Good Morning, I’ve just updated the touchable pro app and I’m having a hard time getting Live and Touchable pro to communicate wirelessly. While my ipad is plugged in I can control Live from the app but I’d love to control Live from my piano on the other side of the room. I’m on live 11 on a mid 2015 macbook running Mojave .
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Is having the laptop and ipad on the same wifi network enough of a connection for them to communicate ij this way or do i have to fiddle with the network settings…?
Thanks in advance
