Position Your WiFi Router

The WiFi Router lets you access your network from virtually anywhere within the operating range of your wireless network. However, the wireless communicating distance varies significantly due to placement of the WiFi Router. For example, the thickness and number of walls the wireless signal passes through can limit the range. For best results, WiFi Router is likely to be place like this:

  • Near the center of the area where your computers and other devices operate, and preferably within line of sight to your wireless devices.
  • So it is accessible to an AC power outlet and near Ethernet cables for wired computers.
  • In an elevated location such as a shelf, keeping the number of walls and ceilings between the WiFi Router and your other devices to a minimum.
  • Away from electrical devices that are potential sources of interference. Equipment that might cause interference includes ceiling fans, home security systems, microwaves, computers, the base of a cordless phone, or a 2.4 GHz cordless phone.
  • Away from any large metal surfaces, such as a solid metal door or aluminum studs. Large expanses of other materials such as glass, insulated walls, fish tanks, mirrors, brick and concrete can also affect your wireless signal.
