2Wire recommends 3 feet from computer, which seems goofy on a
computer desk. I put mine in a different room all by its self.
Works like a charm. The 2Wire USB WiFi PCI sits on top of the
computer, no problems. Good Luck, PS: Watch out for older cordless
phones, can raise hell if too close to Router when in use.
