Tech gurus are telling homeowners to watch the placement of Christmas lights and toys, as some of them can affect wifi signals within a home. They also advise placing a router in a central portion of a home. That means that cables (conventional or fiber-optic) need to properly located in a home when installed. CNN money has a story here.
I’m planning to move my model train downstairs (to get it working properly, and enlarge the amount of physical area available) in early 2016. I hope that won’t affect the new Xfinity router, which is combined with the Arris modem as one unit.
