Just want to mention that wi-fi can act strange...
I was playing around with this Fonera router that I installed OpenWrt on and opened up two SSIDs (on the same BSSID obviously) one for private LAN and one for public WAN access only.
And before long (actually pretty much immediately) people's mobile devices were logging in and using my internet (neighbours, whatever). And I think I am confusing this with my main router, but it's the same thing regardless.
And I was using a Logitech Squeezebox Touch on the wifi channel of my private SSID. And I don't know what they were doing or what was going on, but as long as I had that public channel open, my Squeezebox refused to work properly. And the moment I turned it off (and kicked those users) it started working properly again.
And it can't have used a different band, at least I don't think so, and maybe that router was just messing up, but if you have like 6 wireless devices all churning away happily on their 802.11n (which I think is a faulty standard, I just know it....), you know...... don't forget to play around with disabling the "n" feature.edit:
And I just changed "mixed mode b/g/n" to "g only" on my router and it feels physically better immediately, as if (and I am sure that is the case) I can feel the difference in frequency patterns being emitted. And I have never liked the "n", it appears to be a brute-force attempt at gaining more throughput but which comes at the cost of VASTLY higher power emissions. And I do not know about those things but I could check up on that.
Which I would do right away if my power measuring device was not still stuck in my main power loop for the computer
. And I wish I could interpret its time-counter because there is 480 kWh on the meter
. Must have run since September? No clue.
