    Wireless Network cut-out?
    Hey guys

    i have learned alot about setting up a wireless network with my friends macbook.

    we had setup a network using a linksys wireless G connecting 3 desktops (2 macs and 1 pc) and 3 notebooks (2 macbooks and pc)

    first time it worked fine throughout the house, then started cuting out within a week or so...so i read up and changed the problem facing WPA with macs, so went to WPA2 like i read to do.

    now it worked fine for 2 weeks, and now it is cutting out at random times.

    dunno what to think about it, it is located 4 feet from the main breaker box of the house...did not know if EMI had something to affect it

    Thanks for any help guys

    i changed the frequency to 2.11 MHz or something above the standard 2.4, so i knew about that

    the other consideration was the microwave, but did that have the ability to kick everyone off and switch automatically to the neighbors wireless? the router is in the basement, which shoudnt be a problem with range...

    so the question is, could the microwave kick everyone off and switch it?

    No, but make sure you're not using the same frequency as your neighbor (he might also be hunting around, looking to avoid you too - which would explain the trouble-free times). This widget will help you identify what channel the surrounding neighbors are using.

    Also, get your router UP as high as you can. The basement is quite possibly the worst possible choice of placement.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
