Install and Access the Modem Router and Its Network
15
N600 and AC750 WiFi DSL Modem Routers
Position Your Modem Router
The modem router lets you access your network anywhere within the operating range of your
WiFi network. However, the operating distance or range of your WiFi connection can vary
significantly depending on the physical placement of your modem router. For example, the
thickness and number of walls the WiFi signal passes through can limit the range.
Additionally, other WiFi access points in and around your home might affect your modem
router’s signal. WiFi access points are routers, repeaters, WiFi range extenders, and any
other device that emits a WiFi signal for network access.
Position your modem router according to the following guidelines:
Place your modem router near the center of the area where your computers and other
devices operate and within line of sight to your WiFi devices.
Make sure that the modem router is within reach of an AC power outlet and near Ethernet
cables for wired computers.
Place the modem router in an elevated location, minimizing the number walls and ceilings
between the modem router and your other devices.
Place the modem router away from electrical devices such as these:
-Ceiling fans
-Home security systems
-Microwaves
-Computers
-Base of a cordless phone
-2.4 GHz cordless phone
Place the modem router away from large metal surfaces, large glass surfaces, insulated
walls, and items such as these:
-Solid metal door
-Aluminum studs
-Fish tanks
-Mirrors
-Brick
-Concrete
If you are using adjacent access points, use different radio frequency channels to reduce
interference.
