For your security and best Wi-Fi performance, please:

Do not locate the router in the place where it will be exposed to moisture or excessive heat.

Keep away from strong electromagnetic radiation source and electromagnetic-sensitive devices.

Place the router in a location where it can be connected to the various devices as well as to a power source.

Place the router in a location where it can receive a strong mobile internet signal.

Make sure the cables and power cord are safely placed out of the way so they do not create a tripping hazard.
