D6300 Wireless Direction

Does the D6300 need to face any particular way to obtain maximium range.
In orther words if I point face in direction of users will I achieve better range/speed.

I have mine with the routers back to 'users' and I get a great signal, I think as long as the back and front faces the direction of your 'users' it work very well.

Router should spread signal in Omini Directional , pattern like donut in horizontal spread so while unit is standing it should not matter .

Thank's.
I have not pulled mine apart yet, but would think leads are running around rim, so should be favouring front/back.
But with multiple frequencies and radio's in it who knows.
And new beaming technology in A6200 firmware, Im getting confused on where signal path is these days.
maybe time to breakout the CRO and plot out a 3d signal path graph.
Gone are the days when i pointed a 16Kw transmitter in one direction and everybody recieved the signal.

One thing that has worked for me is to get a cardboard box and line it with aluminum foil inside. I have my router inside this box as it faces the direction I want. It makes a one bar difference in signal strength with is about a 20% increase. Works for me.
