New WRT54GL has worse reception than old WRT54GL !?

    I have two identical Linksys WRT54GL routers at home, one of them is a new FON-router that I recieved last week.

    I'd like to use channel 1 for the FON router since it seems to be the channel with fewest users around here. But I'm having some problems with the signal reception on the FON router, especially on channel 1 and 2.

    If I have both routers on front of me (2m away), and I set the FON router to channel 1, then the reception drops several percent. But if I do the same with my old linksys router, then I have full reception.
    Isn't that weird?

    What could be the problem?
