Hey guys, I was thinking of getting a new TV stand to put my PS4 and 360 in. I was wondering whether to go with a metal one or a wooden one. I feel like the metal would block wifi signals, and it usually has doors that can close, which would block the signal even more. Would a wooden stand be better for receiving wifi signals if i put my consoles there?

Metal can interfere with wifi, depending on signal strength and the metal.

Water can also interfere with wifi, which can crop up for often than most people think. A lot of building materials, including wood and concrete, can have significant water content.

Try investing in a wifi extender, it works wonders.
