What Are Some Tips for Configuring a Linksys Wireless Router?

When configuring a Linksys wireless router, consider router placement, consider the distance between the wireless devices and the router and reduce wireless interference from neighboring networks. Upgrade the router's firmware for better performance and signal strength, and be sure to keep the wireless connection private and secure.

Place the Linksys wireless router in the center of the home for optimal performance, strong signals and a wide coverage area. Reduce the distance between the router and wireless devices or use a wireless range extender to amplify signals and extend coverage throughout the home. If neighboring wireless networks may interfere with the wireless router and the router cannot be moved to another location, change the SSID and channel on the router. Finally, use the Media Prioritization tool on Linksys Smart Wi-Fi to prioritize applications, devices and games for better router performance.
