PROPER WIRELESS ROUTER PLACEMENT

Solution

In a corner, on a shelf or even inside a metal cabinet. These locations can severely limit the wireless performance of the router.

The fix: Most wireless router manufacturers recommend placing the router in an open space – hallways CAN optimal – and to be as close to the center to the home as possible.

The higher up the antenna, the better. Figure out where you’re going to need most of the wireless network coverage (living room, den or kids’ bedroom?), and place the router there if possible.

If you can’t place the router in an optimal location, look into wireless range extenders or powerline adapters to help boost the dead spots that non-optimal placement may create.
