  • Updated 2 years ago
So I live in an apartment complex that has Aerohive and our download speed is absolutely terrible and I want to buy a a new router because the one I have provided to me currently from my apartment complex is awful and I want to get and upgrade do I have to get an aerohive router or access point. I see other people in my building with with diff different routers so I am unsure on what to do. I think we currently have the AP330 and the download speed is a very painful 1mbps and its dreadful to watch

Like others have hinted at, they are likely managing the Aerohive AP's or the complex is not getting much bandwidth through on the entire LAN overall. Hard connect to the LAN and see how your speeds are then connect any cheap router and see what you get.  It may not be worth the money or time depending on the outcome of a few simple tests.
