What is the best orientation of M5Stack Atom-lite to get better RSSI?

  • Hi,

    I tried to figure out how to position my Atom-lite for getting better RSSI. When I place the Atom-lite on the table, with the LED and button facing up, the 3D antenna is facing down. I am not sure is this good for practical applications? I tried different orientations on the same position, the deviation of RSSI is under 2dB which maybe caused by the noise. I really appreciate someone can enlighten me.

  • Hello @PaulChainKang

    there was a discussion a while ago about WiFi and poor RSSI.


  • @felmue Hi Felix,

    Thank you for pointing me the discussion. It does provide valuable information, however, it doesn't discuss about the orientation of the antenna.

    I am curious that in your applications, how do you usually position the 3D antenna? My WiFi router has three whip antennas all positioned vertically, is putting Atom-lite LED/button up (3D antenna facing down) a good practice?
