My 'Neighborhood' (Sigh)

A Couple years ago I moved from 2Ghz to 5Ghz. I kept being 'stepped on'.

Every now and then I check to see how the 'neighborhood' is doing.

Today:

Ch1 One 35%
CH5 One 50%
CH6 Seven (all reporting 40-80%)
CH11 One 50%

and me 'somewhere else'!! !

They are getting better.... Only half are open.... Used to be 80+%

LOL! "I moved from 2 to 5" made me think GHz instead of channels.

For all practical purposes, the 802.11g 2.4GHz band is 3 data channels at roughly channels 1, 6 and 11. For reasons no commercial interest would tolerate, it was split into 11 overlapping channels.

Gee, they should have done 100 channels and make people feel even better - then we'd be using 1, 50 and 100.

The difference between channels 5 and 6 are practically meaningless. If anything significant is gained being on channel 5 vs. 6 then your data is fooling you.

5GHz is possibly the place to be by yourself in a lot of places right now. But everyone's mileage will vary.

while being at 5Ghz is really awesome, the distance between the wireless access point and a wireless device seems to be shorter compared to 2.4Ghz

Added Ghz, Ch#, and Sig Strength %.... Laughter continues...

Actually, I'm Glad 5Ghz doesn't go as far.....

So far, no one has joined me!! But I see they've started to grow 'guest channels'!!

[OT]

I lived in Skokie as a kid (in the 60's). Do they still have the ~something~ "Swift" train that runs through there?
