    Can anyone help me please?
    I have just setup a Wi-Fi network for a friend and every now and then he
    loses the signal from his router and picks up the one from next door,
    Their signal strength seems to be greater then his even though his is 802G &
    B router why is this happening and how can I stop it. Because when the other
    user is on their PC my friend has a very weak signal.
    Can you help!!!

    At the wireless router... change the channel. Default is usually 6. Try 11 and
    1.
    1, 6, and 11 are the best channels to use. They do not overlap.
    While you at the router setup page... make sure you change the password. Do not
    ever leave the password to the default.
