Where should I put my access point for my wireless network?

Where to Put Wireless Network Access Point

Physically speaking, your access point should be placed within range of the other computers on the network and away from objects which may interfere with transmissions, such as cordless phones and microwaves. Place the access point off the floor and do not cover it with bulky objects, as this can interfere with the transmission of the wireless internet signals. There is no need to place two access points right next to one another, and doing so can also interfere with signals.
