Thank you for the reply, changing channels on the router is a hit or a miss. there are up to 10 other wireless hubs in my area on mostly cannels 1, 4, 6, 9 and 12, so it doesn't really matter what i do i will still likely have some interferance. Traffic on the other hand (cars that is) isn't really a problem, its a fairly quite street, and the house and stuff is set back pretty far.
I have thought about getting some sort of bridge or something, but it really angers me that i would have to buy some sort of signal booster when there isn't really that big a problem, especially when it was working 'okay' when i first used it.
I am starting to think that its probably just in a 'blind' spot where the signal doesn't really get there that well. Strange though coz' its when i point the laptop right at the playstation that i get the best signal.
The other thing i should ask is; does a crt tv create more interferance than say an lcd or plasma? I'll probably be getting a 42 inch lcd in the next coming months, so it'd be great if that helps (doubt it though). Im pretty sure crt tv's ussually have a 240 - 1500 volt transformer, but im not sure that an lcd's transformer would have a similar effect. Any thoughts, physicians out there?
