      Quick Question

      Well looking on Laptops i found a IBSS Channel Number thingy and the Channels ranged from 1 - 13 but they can be on a different channel to what your router is on. So if i put both laptops on different channels for example 1 on 1 and the other on 6 would this stop any interference/disturbing the internet.

      Edit: Just to help here are my stats before and after laptop is turned on.

      Before:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 3504 kbps 764 kbps
      Line Attenuation 49.0 db 29.3 db
      Noise Margin 9.0 db 11.5 db

      After Laptop gets turned on:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 3504 kbps 764 kbps
      Line Attenuation 49.0 db 29.3 db
      Noise Margin 2.5 db 11.5 db

      I may have misunderstood what you are saying, but if you put the laptops on 2 different channels then the only one that will connect to the router is the one using the same channel as the router.

      Re: Quick Question

      Yes this is what i thought but it seems that if i put one laptop on the router channel and the other laptop on channel 6 it seems to work still. Thsi is called the IBSS Channel Number on my Dell wireless adapter card.

      Re: Quick Question

      I have also just found that if i disable the wireless adapter in the laptop and connect it to the router via ethernet cable then it does not effect the noise margin or the download speed. Can someone please help?

      Re: Quick Question

      It seems that if the router is on about 4500 kbps+ and you turn this laptop on the Noise Margin goes straight below 2.5db. Then when you reset the router we get a speed of 3500 kbps. Does this laptop not like the router running on a high speed or is the wireless adapter in it broken?
