weird router position

    I accidentally discovered that I get significant (from unusable to weak) signal boost by turning my router upside down. How come? Shouldn't it be the antennae whose rotation matters?

    This is news to me. Does placing the router the right way up but having the antennae pointing downwards have the same effect?

    Why would you want to turn it upside down? What advantages would you gain doing this?

    maybe heat related? It wouldn't take long for the chips to heat up a lot more than designed.

    Like I said, significant signal boost.
