How to reduce effects of interference from other wireless devices?
- Change channels on your wireless network or setting it to Auto select.
- Location is very important, position your router centrally and away from other wireless/electronic devices
- Elevate your router away from the floor
- A clear line of sight to your router is beneficial
- Position yourself as close as possible to the wireless access point
- Reset your Cordless Phone Cradle/Base Station - Upon powering on your base station will attempt to use the channel with the least amount of interference.
- If you have a multi band router ensure all bands are configured
- Minimize the number of active Bluetooth wireless devices you have operating within your home.
- If your router has external antenna, position the antenna straight up, not lying flat.
If having full speed and reliability is important to you, then a hard-wired Ethernet connection is the way to go.
