I'm finally subscribing to ADSL after being on dialup for the last 10 odd years, but to be able to afford it I'm splitting the costs with the others in my household. This means we're all investing in a wireless network as we are currently running two separate networks. Running a cable from my switch to the switch at the other end of the house is not an option. So far only my brother and my PC's are connected to the gateway, (Linksys WAG54G), via Linksys WMP54G network adapters. Our rooms are next to each other and the gateway is located in the kitchen about 7m away. Our computers, though separated by a wall, are only about 2m apart. Heres the problem, My brother gets a rock solid connection at 54Mbps while my connection is very unstable. Often either my transmit rate or my receive rate is stuck on 1Mbps and the signal strength varies by the second quite dramatically. I'm sure some fluctuation is normal but its causing severe lag, packet loss, and insomnia. I don't think its interference, I've used all channels and they are pretty much the same. I'm currently using channel 1. (AU Model) I'm also using MAC address filtering so I doubt its silly buggers. Anyone got any Ideas? Or even able to tell me what a reasonable noise and signal strength level should be. I'm currently on about -79dbm noise and -55dbm signal strength, though my brother gets about the same levels and like I said before he's connection is rock solid. Appreciate any suggestions you can make.
