Scenario 2: Mounting a Router on a Wall

Scenario 2: Mounting a Router on a Wall


Before drilling holes on a wall, make sure that no power cable is routed in the wall. Otherwise, power cables in the wall may cause personal injury.

  • The interface side of a wall-mounted router must face down to protect interfaces from water.
  • Screws must be installed solid in the wall; otherwise, the wall-mounted router may fall down after cables are connected.
  • Ensure that there are no flammable or explosive materials near the router and no obstructions within 100 mm around the router.
  • Install the router at an appropriate height to ensure that the indicators can be observed easily.

Tools and Accessories

  • Measuring tape
  • Marker
  • Hammer drill
  • Claw hammer
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Wall anchors and mounting screws (separately purchased)


  1. Use a measuring tape to determine positions of two mounting holes, keep the two positions aligned, and mark the positions with a marker.

    • The distance between two installation holes of the AR100 series, AR129CGVW-L, AR129CVW, AR129CV, AR169CVW-4B4S or AR169CVW router is 120 mm.
    • The distance between two installation holes of the AR161EW, AR161EW-M1, AR169EW or AR169EGW-L router is 185 mm.

  2. Drill holes and install mounting screws.
    1. Choose an appropriate drill bit according to the diameter of the mounting screws. The diameter of the mounting screws cannot exceed 4 mm.
    2. Hammer the hollow wall anchors into the mounting holes.
    3. Use a Phillips screwdriver to screw the mounting screws into the wall anchors. Leave the screws protruding 2 mm from the wall.

  3. Align the mounting holes on the rear of the router with mounting screws and hang the router on the mounting screws.
