WD Mycloud placed next to my router? Is that all right?

Probably a stupid question, but according to the manuel, it needs to be away from any electrical device.  So just wondering if it is ok to place the device next to a router?  Many thanks.


Just don’t place it next to your toster! :dizzy_face:

Heat would be your main concern.  Make sure there is enough airflow between the devices.  Also, a wifi router obviously gives off a lot of RF radiation.  I would separate them by at least 12 inches, if possible, but if not, I don’t see it causing a lot of problems for the My Cloud.  I’d be more concerned about how the My Cloud might negatively affect the wifi signals of the router by being right next to it.
