      It looks fine, although hard to see the whole picture.

      Ideally you need to experiment to see if things are alright at your end now.

      I would also prefer to see the signal Time Graph. This would show whether or not your WiFi signal is stable.

      Re: Wireless Interference, Frequency's

      For reference, your area is quite quiet. The pics below are from 2 adaptors on my laptop. The first is the built-in WiFi. The second is from the Netgear dongle supplied with my router.

      In the 5 GHz pic, mine is the only one

      In the two 2.4GHz pics, mine is the one with the strongest signal. This is also true of the time graph, but v1 time graph shows both the 2.4 & 5GHz signals from my router.

      I have over 40 WiFi routers in range of my Laptop. The pics only show the ones whose signals were being picked up at the time. If I move around my home, I can pick up many more.

      Edit: v1 is the dongle, v2 is the built in WiFi adaptor. Your connection should be fine, but in fairness you will need to experiment with changing the channel again if there are signs of problems.

      I would be inclined to try channel 13, that may get you out of some of the interference caused by the other router on Channel 11.

      My laptop does not work with channel 13.
      I have an Atheros ARB593 Wireless N Wifi In My Acer Aspire.
      Only 1 - 11.
      I also have the latest driver, the May 2011 One.

      Channel 13 now works, and it is running fine, seems faster.
      Thanks
