Best Location for Your Linksys Velop Extender

To get uninterrupted internet access even in blind zones of your house, keep the following points into consideration for best extender placement.

The Central Location

The Linksys Velop WiFi range extender broadcast the WiFi signals in every direction of your house. Therefore, while placing your Linksys device, ensure to place it away from corners. The reason being, placing the device in a corner or near to corners, will not give you the whole-home WiFi coverage.

So, in accordance to this, place your Linksys Velop extender at the center-most area in your home, and that to within range of your existing router.

Secondly, while placing your Linksys Velop extender near to your router, it is also advised that you place it (router) openly. If  you have placed your existing router inside a cabinet or beneath a table, then also you will not be able to get the most out of your Velop’s WiFi signals. Why? Because the Velop doubles the internet speed of the WiFi range coming out of your main router. If your router is hidden, then how will it provide the WiFi signals to your extender? And, if your extender is not receiving router’s WiFi signals, then how will it (Velop) provide you extended range of the internet.

So, to make the most out of your Linksys Velop and your existing router WiFi signals, place them both:

  • At center-most area in your home
  • In reach of each other
  • On a higher, clean, and non-congested surface

Once you are done with placing your WiFi range extender and the center-most area in your home and near to your router, you are free to check the extended WiFi range by accessing Linksys Velop login page. Here’s to hope that, you access the login page of your Linksys Velop device in blink of an eye and without any hassle.

In a Nutshell
