How To get Best Signals from Wireless Routers, Access Points and other Wi-Fi Devices

Question : How do I get the best performance from my Wireless routers without shelling out more money?


Step 1 : Make sure you set up the Operating Channel and Region
correctly. It will also ensure proper agency compliance and compatibility between similar products.

Step 2 : Placement of Router
The operating distance or range of your wireless connection can vary
significantly based on the physical placement of the router.

For best
results, place your router:
Near the center of the area in which your PCs will operate. In an elevated location such as a high shelf.
Away from potential sources of interference, such as PCs, microwave ovens, and cordless phones.
Away from large metal objects and surfaces.

Note: Failure to follow these guidelines can result in significant performance degradation or inability to wirelessly connect to the router.
