Preparation before Installation

Before installing the DAP-3712, check the
distance between the two sides and ensure
that they are within wireless signal range of
each other. It may be helpful to use a Graphic
Information System (GIS) program such as
Google Earth to check for obstructions between
the two sites. If there is an obstruction, it may
help to install the DAP-3712 as high as possible
to prevent the signal from being blocked.
