Re: Router Replacement?

So on G/N the non overlapping channels are 1, 5 and 9? If so I will double check and see if 5 or 9 is better. I do have Wifi Analyzer and Channel 1 seemed to be slightly less busy but all were pretty busy.

Yes, for best results you should consider getting a 5 ghz router ( Verizon doesn't have one )

No, the non-overlapping channels are 1, 6 and 11.

Channel 5 overlaps channel 6 and channel 9 overlaps channel 11.

As guppy_fish See Profile said, your best bet is to get an N router and set it to use the 5Ghz band only. You'll find less congestion in the 5Ghz band.

1, 6, and 11 is what I thought and tested. I have a nice Asus RT-16 running Tomato (not hooked up) but it isn't 5Ghz either.

I have multiroom DVR and didn't think any of the multi router options made a lot of sense for me. I guess either I will have to do that or just live with 30/25 on wireless. Which is really ok.

I have a Netgear WNDR3400 at work I could try (it is 5Ghz).

Thanks again everyone.
