Positioning of Access Points/Routers

Onea Africa

The ideal location for a wireless router is thus in a central open area. Placing your router in the center of your property decrease wasted coverage; avoid placing it in the kitchen, walls, mirrors, and fish tanks, among other places.

Because most structures were built before Wi-Fi was generally available, various characteristics, such as flooring, reinforced walls, and in-wall wiring, may make connecting to your WiFi difficult. Kitchen appliances can interfere with wireless signals and interrupt networks. Distance from your network will make connection more difficult, and you risk losing signal entirely. Creating Wi-Fi dead zones.
