    This continues as my attempt to fix my dropout issues. so far i might have found a fix, but am curious to what others think..

    i saw in a post before (i cant find it right now) that if the router is set to G-only mode then B-signals are interpreted as noise and can cause interference.

    i set my AP back to mixed mode and, so far, it has been working at full-kick and has not dropped out yet. where as before it would dip down to 1 mbps on almost every channel.

    your thoughts? thanks!

    Ummm...anything that is not desired is noise. So if you have a G network, all the people using B stuff is noise. But it is also noise with a B network, because they are obviously not part of your network.

    In other words, everything in the 2.4 GHz band that isn't talking on your network is noise. Microwaves, cordless phones, other people's WiFi, etc, etc.
