The placement and environment of your Zyxel device significantly affect the Wi-Fi signal strength.

1. Central Location: Place your Zyxel device in a central area of your space for uniform coverage. Avoid corners or distant rooms.

2. Avoid Obstructions: Keep the device away from physical obstructions like walls, large furniture, or metal objects that can weaken the signal.

3. Steer Clear of Electronics: Electronic appliances like microwaves or cordless phones can interfere with Wi-Fi signals. Keep your device away from these.

4. Elevate the Device: Positioning your Zyxel device at a higher point can help in better signal distribution.

5. Avoid Hidden Spots: Placing APs in cabinets, behind TVs, or in closets significantly reduces signal strength. Always opt for open, unobstructed locations.
