      Connection drop via wireless

      Hi All - Another Mac user joining the chorus!

      I'm on a g5 OS 10.4.8 and connecting wirelessly to the sky router two floors below which is sat next to another identical g5. The one downstairs seems fine, but the one upstairs drops its connection quite frequently. I've switched off upnp, and rewired all the bt sockets in the house so that only wires 2 and 5 are connected. Used mognuts to get the following stats. Any suggestions?
      Many thanks!
      Andrew

      Re: Connection drop via wireless

      Hi All

      I'll answer my own question, because I've found the solution and it may be useful for people in a similar position. Apologies if this is obvious!

      Some of the neighbours' hubs (all BT homehubs) are operating on the same channel as my Sky router. By changing the channel on the router I have now got a clean and stable connection.

      I detected the channels of other wireless signals by downloading the wireless radar widget from macwireless.com

      Hope this little story helps others!
      Andrew
