Wireless LAN Tips--Part 4 of 5
Positioning your wireless LAN nettwork hubs is a more critical and difficult task than it is for wired LAN hubs. You don't need to maintain a line of sight between your wireless LAN hub and your wirelessly connected PC. However, if you place your hub behind filing cabinets or far away in a corner, you may be shortening the maximum distance at which your hub and PC can connect. Your best bet is to follow the positioning instructions included with your wireless LAN hardware, but also experiment with placing wireless hubs in different locations and hooking up your network before you permanently mount the hubs to the wall.
