    Does it matter which way around you install a router into a rack?

    No, some customers like to see all devices facing the front of Rack others prefer the back. As long as the door shuts without effecting the cabling does not matter. I like them facing front view on as I can check the connectivity lights with ease. :D

    Diagonally takes up too much space... unless, of course, you have a diagonal rack.

    As long as you can fit the cables in then it doesn't matter.
