Windows 7: 16 different wireless networks in my living room!

15 Feb 2010   #11

Vista and 7(Dual boot)

I actually went out and got a new router entirely... ive also tried moving the router to different places in the house with no help... as of right now the only place that has wireless is the basement which when i do a scan with inSSIDer only detects 2 other wireless networks(I would assume thick concrete walls have something to do with that) and the wireless works perfectly fine down in the basement, but in the rest of the house(Where 11-16 different wireless networks are detected at any given time) the wireless is completely worthless if it even connects.

Thanks again for the input, ive been on hold with linksys for about an hour now... woot? So far the people on here have been FAAAAR more helpful than anyone else.

Ok Please do not laugh

This is a serious possible solution

Antenas fitted to home routers are omnidirectional so the drop off is often quite dramatic It is possible to set up a a more directional output that if positioned correctly could boost the signal and be less prone to interference.

Have a look here for options for home made parabolic reflectors and other ways of increasing signal
