Any high-quality router or wireless router will work on our network from a technical standpoint. We support all standard networking protocols.
Make sure your router isn't:
You cannot use any type of cable modem router combo routers or DSL/modem router combo WiFi routers, they are NOT compatible with our network. You need a standard Ethernet router that is 802.11ac at a minimum. Also make sure you are not using an N150/N300 or N600 Router as they cannot handle the noisy wireless environment in apartment buildings. One final note, make sure that you never name your 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz SSID or wireless names the same thing. You will want to name them separately such as Apt504-2g, Apt504-5g, and then you will always want to connect to the 5g signal for the best performance.
