Rules of thumb for Double-Channel AP placement (disc version):

1) The access point should be in complete line of sight view to all the iPads unless you have multiple access points, in which case the access point should have line of sight view to all the iPads that it will be communicating with.
2) The access point should be raised onto a ceiling or a ceiling-like platform so that the unit is parallel to the ground and the light is facing down towards the ground. There is a bracket included with the access point to help assist in hanging the unit.
3) The access point should be within 20 feet of the iPads
4) The access point should NOT be in a drawer, on a shelf, or under counters The better the network hardware is setup, the better things will run overall.

We understand some of these may be challenging given the layout of your establishment, but it should greatly improve the network.

4) The access point should NOT be in a drawer, on a shelf, or under counters The better the network hardware is setup, the better things will run overall.
