Wireless Channel Selection

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?QnJpYW4gUw==?=, Jan 10, 2005.

  1. My neighbor has a wireless home network. He is running a Linksys setup
    showing on Channel 6. My system is a Netgear and it is running on Channel
    11. From what I have read 1, 6 & 11 are the preferred channels for best
    signal. My neighbor wants to know if he changes his channel to 1 or 11 would
    this interfere with my network nearby. His signal gets dropped quiet often
    and feels this may be the issue due to a weak signal from his router.

    I checked it last night again, and I was able to scan and find my
    network...! It shows the channel as 48(G) with 100%. Also it picks up
    the linksys Channel as 136(B) with 100%.


    But Its still not connecting to my network.. It sometimes says, that
    the network card is unplugged.. I cant even do 'ipconfig'... I have
    assigned IP addresses and also use MAC ID for distinguish my PC on the
    router side.... Can anyone help me please???


    Thanks,...

    Anyone know what frequency cordless DECT phones work at?

    Is it anywhere the frequency of WiFi.
