Give your wifi waves room to move without hindrance! Ideally, the router should be slightly elevated, so that it overcomes furniture and other obstacles. The router works best if it is standing freely and is not hidden in a drawer or on a shelf.
POSITIONING THE ROUTER
The front of your router (where the little lights are) should always be facing into the room. So do not position your router with the front facing the wall or against a piece of furniture. Ideally, the device should also stand on its “feet” – as intended by the manufacturer.
AVOIDING SOURCES OF INTERFERENCE
The following devices should not be too near it, because they can impair the quality of the wifi network.
° Base station of a cordless telephone
° Baby phone
° Bluetooth devices
° Surveillance cameras
LAN INSTEAD OF WLAN
You will obtain the fastest and most stable Internet connection if you connect your computer to the router with a network cable (Ethernet) instead of using wifi. This is a good alternative if you use a stationary computer that is positioned close to the router.
