Home WiFi can be affected by Christmas lights, toys

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.
