no cos it would leave them without On Demand and Downstairs WiFi
- the upstairs WiFi is problematic - the whole thing needs changing, really she needs to move the phone socket to downstairs in hallway so router is central to house an in open space...but she wont do this because its a rented property...so, I have used her powerline adapters to put a router in the living room so she can get wifi downstairs AND On Demand at the sky box, I need to completely disable upstairs wifi and leave downstairs wifi on - the upstairs wifi (Talk Talk N class router) is in a cupboard on floor buried under bags of stuff..she has interference problems to start with and its got worse since i changed its channel from 1 (where all her neighbours are, and she still had some disconnection issues on) to channel 9 (its worse..apparently) and downstairs on channel 13 (or other way around I cant remember)
- ive told her to use downstairs wi-fi but when you tell them it doesnt seem to sink in lol, I told them before I left on sunday to use downstairs one if having problems with upstairs (too switch between them when going up or down) but didnt bother trying it lol...just contact me to say summits not right... i reckon they think I dont know what Iam doing and screwing things up lol - she has a massive 4 bed house with massive wireless interference, the BT socket is in a cupboard upstairs lol... the router is buried in that cupboard and they use wifi mostly in living room downstairs or in bedroom upstairs at back of the house, which has another room and hallway in between that and this cupboard...lol.
I dont know whats causing the interference or if its just cos her routers poor and she has it buried in a cupboard or combo of both..? she is surrounded by shops and I think its related...something somewhere has bad wiring/electrics and is emitting REIN , I think it could be her heating..she did say that its been dropping out during the day now and its December, she would have heating on - previously it seemed to be nights only..
thing that annoys me is ..all I can do is try different setups etc - when it starts dropping later I get messages saying "summits not right" and makes me feel like they think Iam clueless lol
