Even after assigning IPs, setting the router's IP to something not standard, and various other settings, it still gets bumped off when another network comes on. That router must be one hell of a strong router. I wish they'd just leave theirs on, since once it is on and I reestablish my connection, there is no problem. It does look as though rebooting my router blows theirs off, because it immediately disappears from the network list. <br><br>
Have you tried "Enable Hidden Wireless :"?<br><br>In case it's a matter of them trying to connect and not some kind of EMF, radio wave, or Channel crossing voodoo.<br><br>------>#1 - JD's Trivia game<br><br>------>#2 - MM-MCF Trivia game
This sounds way too peculiar. Someone else restarting their wireless router should not restart yours. Do you know what house has this router? Do they wear aluminum foil hats? If you hold a frankfurter out of a window in the direction of their house is it ready for the mustard in 30 seconds?<br><br>I would find out who owns it but tread lightly. The next religious cult which is attempting to meet up with their god behind a comet has to live somewhere. It could be next door to you.

I agree with poly "This sounds way too peculiar. Someone else restarting their wireless router should not restart yours."<br><br>Download iStumbler or Macstumbler and see what networks are in the area, and what the power is. Maybe someone has a boosted base station that is blowing yours out when it starts, or causing interference because it's too strong.<br><br>------>#1 - JD's Trivia game<br><br>------>#2 - MM-MCF Trivia game

It doesn't restart my router, just blows off my wife's mini via wireless. Yes, I've checked enable hidden wireless, but it doesn't seem to stick. The other network is "locked" (secure) as well as mine. Rebooting my router so that the mini's AP card gets reconnected seems to blow off the other network/router as well, since it disappears from the available networks list. Oh, the mini is not n capable. It's the 1.66 GHz CoreDuo model. Maybe relocating the router might help. I can move it farther from the window and about 10 feet closer to the mini.<br><br>
I missed his restart comment, I knew it just disconnected. I just find it strange that it takes her connection down, that's why I wonder about signal strength. It sounds like it's actually taking your router's wireless down. After hers drops rebooting her computer won't let her connect, you have to reboot the router? If so then it's taking out your router's wireless and not the mini. If I remember, you got the new router as the old one was doing the same thing.<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Rebooting my router so that the mini's AP card gets reconnected seems to blow off the other network/router as well, since it disappears from the available networks list.<p><hr></blockquote><p>What I find odd is that it actually goes off the list, unless you're temporarily blowing it out by restarting yours.<br><br>------>#1 - JD's Trivia game<br><br>------>#2 - MM-MCF Trivia game
Where I am, there's TERRIBLE WiFi G interference--around 10 networks visible, who knows how many hidden, and untold cordless phones, Bluetooth devices, and microwave ovens I would change channels to minimize the problems, and then have to change again in a few weeks when the networks around me changed.<br><br>So this doesn't sound THAT strange to me. Just aggravating.<br><br>In fact, my cordless 2.4 Ghz cordless phone would kill my home network... but ONLY if I was talking to a cell phone on the other end. This is a consistent pattern, for months. Usually I could call land lines just fine, but if I called a cell phone (or got a call from one) the network would drop. Figure THAT one out! Then I'd change channels (on my phone) while still on the call, and the network would come back. But the next call, now on the new "good channel" would still kill the WiFi. Change channels again. Every time. I wonder what my phone was doing to neighbors' networks!<br><br>(And every time, the current Work Unit in Folding@Home would be deleted, due to a known F@H bug.
