  • Place your router midway between the area where the Wifi devices are placed and the main router. This is considered to be an optimum position.
  • AC outlet would be near the router as it requires one to plugged in. The router must be placed in an area so that the devices that want to connect through Ethernet cables can reach the router. www.routerlogin.net
  • Make sure there are fewer walls and ceilings in between the router and other devices accessing the internet. This thing will provide a maximum range to the devices.
  • Place your router away from electrical as well as reflective devices. Electrical devices include microwave, computer, cordless phone, ceilings etc. Reflective devices include aluminium devices, mirrors, brick, metal door etc. www.routerlogin.net
