Things to consider with setup and placement
Before setting up your Wifi point, there are a few things to consider in order to have the best Wi-Fi performance possible.
- Choose an open space in plain view, like on a shelf or TV stand.
- As a general rule, Wifi points work best when they're about 2 rooms away from each other.
- We also suggest placing your Wifi point in a central location at eye level. This’ll provide even coverage throughout your home.
