Making sure your devices get the strongest WiFi signal for the fastest Internet connection.
Location, Location, Location
Placing your router or gateway near windows, cabinets and corners can slow your WiFi signal. Give your router or gateway lots of space to breathe and with plenty of airflow to prevent overheating.
PRO TIP: Your router or gateway's signal spreads down and out. To maximize coverage, it's best to place it off the floor on a shelf or bookcase - as high as possible.
Every day electronic devices can interfere with your WiFi signal. Try to avoid placing things like your microwave, cordless phones, wireless security camera or baby monitor near your router or gateway.
Your WiFi signal strength, from router to device, will diminish over distance in your home. So, in other words, the farther you move from the WiFi router, the weaker the signal will be. Additionally, if there are multiple obstacles, like walls or furniture between your gateway or router and your device, you may also experience WiFi dead zones in your home.
