Living in an apartment, I have many very close neighbors. After setting up a wireless network, that went smoothly, I occasionally get knocked offline. When I check for available networks to connect to, mine will not be listed and others will be. I have a linksys and I'll see connections available for Netgear, Belkian, and other private named connections. After a few minutes (usually) my actual connection will be available again and I can connect.
So my question is, can competing wireless routers cancel each other out if they cover the same area with their signal or should you always be able to connect to your router regardless of how many wireless access points are located around you?
Thanks for any info, John
