Rbk53 best placement for apartament onde floor

[img]https://i.imgur.com/Dl7ih1e.jpg[/img]

Hello,

 

I am about to receive the rbk53 kit and i am thinking the best placement for the router and satelites.

 

I´ve marked with red and orange the 2 possibilities for the router placement.

The orange is near the tv.

 

The blue is the satelites.

 

Any recomendations about settings to get the maximum performance?

What is the size of your home? Sq Ft?
What is the distance between the router and satellite(s)? 30 feet is recommended in between them to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected.


Any Wifi Neighbors near by? If so, how many? Having many wifi nieghbors near by will be problematic. 

 

Try enabling Beamforming and MIMO(MIMO may or maynot be needed) and WMM. Under Advanced Tab/Advanced Settings/Wireless Settings

 

Try disabling the following:
Armor, Circle, Daisy Chain, Fast Roaming, IPv6 and Set 20/40Mhz Coexistence to 40Mhz only. Save settings and reboot the router and satellite(s).

My Setup ISP SparkLight | Internet Cable 1000↓/50↑ CM2000 Modem | Wifi Router RAXE50 and R8500(v.158) Router Mode | Switches NG GS105/8 | 

Additional NG HW: C7800/CAX80/CM1100/CM1200/CM2000, Orbi: CBK40, CBK752, RBK50, RBK853, RBK752, RBK953, SXK30 | NightHawk: R7000, R7800, R7960P, R8000, R8500, RAXE500, RAX50, XR450, EX7500/EX7700, GS308v3

Nice pic....your network will perform best IF the router is in the center of the home.  Sats can be moved closer if needed (magenta light).  Once you get the light to go out, leave them alone.
