Do you have a WiFi infrastructure already? If not, you might want to consider getting it – that’s pretty much the only requirement for the Social WiFi software to work.
What’s the difference between 802.11n and 802.11ac? They are both WiFi standards; 802.11ac is around three times as fast as 802.11n. If you have a fast connection available, it’s recommended to aim for 802.11ac.
When to get a router instead of just APs? When there is no configurable Internet router within your network.
