Where you place your modem makes a significant impact on the quality of your internet speeds and Wi-Fi connection. When finding a spot for your modem, follow these tips and check out the YouTube video below for best results.

  • Choose a central location, close to where you connect to Wi-Fi the most.
  • Avoid spots where other wireless devices or appliances are likely to create signal interference.
  • Position your modem upright, with 6 inches or more of open space around it.
  • Don’t place it where building or furniture materials are likely to reflect or absorb your Wi-Fi signal.
  • Place your modem where you can see it – the ideal spot is on a shelf or table.
