wireless signal improvement

I don't use wireless for trading but at home it is still handy to have for portable stuff.

Several months ago the signal quality and reliability strangely deteriorated and I just assumed more nearby domestic router installations or the co-incident switch on of some of the new 4G nets. I tried the usual channel switching with no significant benefit and ended just having to tolerate the frustrating performance drop, bypassing with mains wiring links for important stuff.

Today I found a new tack which has seen a huge quality jump - switching off the old 'b' 11mhz signal, so it now only broadcasts on the 'g' 54mhz one (the router default was to broadcast 'g'+'b'.)

I don't have a great explanation, so I'll stick with the poor one - it seems to help a lot.

I'd be interested if anyone has a good explanation, a valid rebuttal, or evidence of similar?

Some routers have to share an antenna with each frequency band. By switching one band off you give exclusive access to the antenna. That is my best guess. Most modern routers have one antenna per wifi band for this reason, each frequency band has its own dedicated antenna.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

@ratfink:

I'm still happy with this router which I use for about two years now.
It is very reliable and has got separate antennas for each frequency band which eliminates all WLAN issues:

Amazon.com: FRITZ!Box Fon WLAN 7390 - Wireless Router - ISDN/DSL: Computers & Accessories

(Couldn't find the Amazon UK link on the fly )

Where did you go to switch that? Would appreciate you answer.

In this case it's a SKY supplied router with internal software settings that can be changed via a fixed LAN address webpage - most routers have this kind of control and it usually needs to be done with access through a wired port. Google'ing router models usually gives enough information if the manual or configuration information has been lost.
