Best antenna orientation for single story house

I just replaced my Linksys E4200 with the R7000 and have generally been pretty satisfied with the performance of the router. I did have one question, though. The user manual suggests pointing the two external antennae at a 45 deg angle while keeping the middle one at 90 deg (straight up).

Is this the best orientation for a single level house? I am wondering if the manual suggested orientation is a compromise for people living in mult-level dwellings and the suggested orientation may not be the best option for a single level coverage. I will do some testing with different orientations to get the best results, but wanted to get some feedback in the mean time. Thanks.

All three antenna is omni direction antenna which spread on horizontal

By putting 45Degree it helps to spread the signal evenly.


If you have not issues as is you should not need of changing it .

you can try all three 90degree wouldn't hurt or leave it is. I would use inssider and see the signal reading
