Where Should You Place Your Wi-Fi Router?

Where should you place your Wi-Fi router to address poor signal connectivity issues and frequent internet dropouts?

If your Wireless network is showing signs of connectivity issues with frequent dropouts as you move around your home chances are there is a booster location or signal limitation issue.

  • Moving too far from your router or access point can cause Wi-FI connectivity problems. Here are some quick tipes you can use to get better Wi-Fi signal throughout your business or home:
  • Find a better location within your property that can provide more centralised wireless signal coverage from router. Most routers tends to distribute wireless signal outwards (like a ripple effect) in all directions thereby making it more likely to address your area of limited coverage.
  • Check is not close to other common obstructions such as high frequency electronic items (microwave, bluetooth devoces, cordless phones...etc) as these can emit signals that interfere with your Wi-Fi signal.
  • Place your router in wide, open spaces instead of inside a cupboard or right behind think-solid a walls. Sometimes having your router within visible line-of-sight can help to boost WIFI connectivity and overall signal flow.
