The router receives a much cleaner and less noisy signal for amplification, significantly improving the received signal
and providing a clean, powerful signal that extends WiFi coverage and performance. Active antennas help reduce
the mismatch between the sent and the received signal by compensating for the relatively poor WiFi on the client
side.This WiFi improvement is seen across all devices-new and old but helps mobile devices the most, which present
the greatest connectivity challenges today.
Position the Active Antennas
The router’s four active antennas include a built-in receiver low noise amplifier (LNA), for high-speed WiFi connections
and excellent range. Both the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz low band (WiFi Channels 36-48, and 52-64) use the active
antennas. The 5 GHz high band (WiFi Channels 100-140, and 149-65) uses the passive antenna.
The best position for the active antennas depends on the layout for your home or office.We recommend the following
•For a large single-story home (about 2,500 to 4,000 square feet in size), position all four antennas vertically and
place the router on a table.
•For a multi-level home, position the two antennas in the center vertically, and position the other antennas at a
45-degree outward angle.
