Re: How to Minimize Wireless Interferen

My wife and I have recently started experiencing wireless dropouts at home as well. Got SSID, changed channels, got ATT to send a new router. Signal strength stayed at 50 downstairs after new router installed upstairs. (Signal is 50 even in a room off the upstairs where the RG is. Jumps to 98% in the room where the RG is. Plaster walls at play?)
Got Dell tech to reinstall network adapter drivers, etc. What happens is my laptop hangs at "Requesting" after an hour of browsing and nothing short of a reboot will allow me to brows again. I finally ordered a new 150 mps high power antenna which I'm hoping will solve the problem. As I said, this seems to be a recent issue and am wondering if it's because the routers in the same room as my son's xbox 360. I'll try raising the RG off the floor and changing to channel 11.
If anyone has any more suggestions, I'm open to them. Thanks to all esp. Joe!
