Hi two problems in your xirrus:

1. Your network is French on channel 6 and 2 using wide channel 40Mhz on router is that correct?

If yes then network below is also on channel 6 and two i suggest setting primary channel 11 and secondary channel to 8 please do this immediately.

2. Your signal is weak and that is the biggest problem here.

Where is your computer located and where is your router located?

For example are they in same room or different rooms at different ends of the house and what distance approx.

Or are they on different floors please let us know.

Thanks.

With this weak of a signal you will get better performance using the 20Mhz single channel mode, you can change that setting in your routers set up page. The 40Mhz setting only works well if the signal strength is very high.

You should also enable security and encryption in your routers set up page, best to use WPA2 with AES encryption. I'm not sure why you aren't using any security or encryption for your wireless network?

The bigger problem is that your signal strength isn't very good here so relocating the router or adding a wireless access point would be the best way to make the signal better.

You must have made the recommended adjustments in that case. I'm hoping that you enabled the security, changed to the 20Mhz mode and changed the channel.
