If you need guaranteed, ordered delivery from one machine to another 
then you should use TCP sockets instead of UDP sockets. Since you seem 
to be sending directly between two machines this is ideal. In Pd it is 
trivial to set up a TCP connection with [netsend] and [netreceive]. TCP 
has slightly larger overhead than UDP because of the ACKs but I think 
over WiFi you will not notice the difference.
