    Hey guys! I have a router related question. I have an Asus RT-N66U WiFi router at my home. It’s a dual band width router and use 5ghz bandwidth to stream videos in the hard disk connected on it. I want to get the maximum range for both the wireless networks and decided to install it somewhere in the middle of the house. I am planning to build a custom sheet metal rack to keep it. But I am concerned if a metal rack can interfere with WiFi signals. Is it true? If then, how can I minimize the interference? I heard that installing something called high gain antennas may improve the range and performance of the network. Is it true and should I buy them? I hope someone could answer me this.
    Please Help !
    Thanks !
    I didn’t find the right solution from the internet.
