Best location for your router

 

Did you know location matters when it comes to your router? You’ll get the best Wi-Fi performance if you place your router in an open space near the center of your home. Here are more tips:

 

  • Avoid physical obstructions. Plaster or brick walls tend to have the most negative impact, but any obstruction including cabinets and furniture weaken the signal to some degree.
  • Go high. Routers tend to spread signal downward, so it’s best to mount the router as high as possible to maximize coverage.
  • Stay away from appliances that send wireless signals. Keep the router at least three feet away from any appliance that sends wireless signals in the same 2.4 GHz frequency range, such as microwave ovens, baby monitors, and home automation equipment.
