Here's a couple of shots.
The red one is the access point, the green is the internet router downstairs. I'm currently sitting right next to the access point.
I haven't touched the channels so they have done that automatically. WOuld it be better to try and get them both on the same channel which seems less congested around here? - I guess the two blue ones are other wireless devices (neighbours) operating on the same channel?
It I should force them to use a specific channel, is there a preference? Seems most other WiFi uses channel 11, but what is wrong with channel 3 or 4?
Seems to work okay but the range isn't as strong as I thought. It's about 15/20 metres from upstairs to near the back of the garden and it took a while to steady out.
An improvement on what we had anyway for sure!
