The stickie up flags on my Nighthawk X6

Do the fold up plastic flag type things on top of the router actually do anything, help the wifi signal etc or are they there just to make it look pretty.  The reason I ask is, would it help if I tried, pointing, them towards different areas.  I rather suspect they are there to satisfy people who want it to look technical and not do anything

   Do you mean the antennas?  Here's a radical concept:

 

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RTFM

 

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Read.  Look for "Hardware
Setup" or "antenna".  Further reading might not hurt, either.

 

   Another radical concept: Run the experiment.
