Hi,
In the user guide is written to set the 3 antennas in 45, 90 and 135 degrees.
From D-Link I know that they say: all three 90 degrees (vertical).

My question: what is best in case
- trying the have a good coverage on long distance
- trying to have a good coverage on more levels in a house

Anybody here with more knowledge about antenna positions in case of multiple antenna's ?

I have \ | /

Literally how they click into place in their default positions and I'm getting good signals even outside my house , (neighbour 4 doors down can see my wifi on 4/5 bars on his PC).

We get full 5 bars everywhere in the house and this is with the default setting for transmission powers too.

Positioning will depend on your specific location. For instance if the router is in a corner of the house, then having antennas toward the back wall will bring little improvements. If it's in the straight center however, moving them in three totally opposite direction might yield the best results. Therefore there's no real "best configuration for everyone". You will have to experiment.

In RT-*66U we have 3 independent spatial streams and for best efficient we need that each stream have a different characteristics. By setting antennas  in 45, 90 and 135 degrees we make sure all streams will spread in different directions.
