Re: Slow 5GHz transfer rate

Thank you for the reply, and sorry for the delay.. Looking at the settings the 5Ghz is set to 20Mhz channel width, is this the reason I only see around 86Mbps but prior to them doing the update I had around 325Mbps? if so which so you suggest I try changing this too? I can see quite a few options......

Re: hAP AC2 for home use

Just noticed the one they supply is the hAP AC Lite... Is the hAP AC2 the same thing just better specification? From what I read it looks the same apart from the specification. One supplier I looked at has the AC2 as an access point? I have been told by the same company and my ISP these are supplied...

hAP AC2 for home use

Good afternoon My WISP has supplied me a Mikrotik router but this is a very restricted version with most software options hidden.. I know I can use any cable connection router as it replaced a standard T P Link unit.. If I purchase the hAP AC2 router from a stockist should this work "out of the box"...
