      Can you change the channel on your video sender?

      Hi thank you for your reply. Yes the video sender has 3 settings, which have tried all but still as quite bad interference flashing across the screen, the Welltech sender is new. To eliminate the interference I have to disconnect the "On Demand Wifi" Box, and obviously have to set everything up again to use the box, bit of a pain.

      Re: Wireless Mini Wifi On Demand Unit

      Could I suggest that you have a look at what else is positioned near both the sender and the receiver?

      I have a Nikkai unit and was getting a slightly snowy picture. I later found that the problem was caused by my DVD Recorder when I moved it.

      You could try changing the wifi channel in the router, that may help. Use Inssider to find the best channel and go on from there.

      Many thanks for all the replies. Thank you scubbie you hit the nail on the head. I moved both the sender and the Wifi box as far away from each other as possible, which rectified the problem. I feel an idiot I should have tried that before. Many, many thanks to all for your time.

      Don't worry. We are all guilty of forgetting the obvious on occasions. Glad that this has resolved the issues though.

      Most 1 shops sell usb extension cables which may be useful too.
