Recommended Height when setting up the Alien


  • Is there a height recommendation when setting up the AmpliFi Alien?


  • Probably just try to account for any obstructions to the signal and go from there. Get a nice long ethernet cable and do some experimenting. Also, you can download WifiMan on a couple devices and do point to point testing throughout your home.

    I had mine about 6.5 feet up on a pretty tall bookshelf in the center of my house and got worse coverage there compared to about 3 feet up near an outer wall.

    I think the first location had some objects causing refraction because it was so close to the ceiling initially.


  • @ObscuraPrime I've ALWAYS mounted my routers as close to the ceiling as possible, since the LEAST amount of interference in your house is close to the ceiling..no tv, no cell phones, nothing is being used close to the ceiling..I always get the best results doing it that way
