Best Location for Wireless Operation

Many environmental factors may affect the effective wireless function of the DSL Router. 
If this is the first time that you set up a wireless network device, read the following information:
The Router can be placed on a shelf or desktop, ideally you should be able to see the LED indicators in the front, as you may need to view them for troubleshooting.

Designed to go up to 100 meters indoors and up to 300 meters outdoors, wireless LAN lets you access your network from anywhere you want. 
However, the numbers of walls, ceilings, or other objects that the wireless signals must pass through limit signal range. 
Typical ranges vary depending on types of materials and background RF noise in your home or business. 
So try to set your router away enough from TV, Microwave and be in a centralized location at your home.
