I recently installed a WLAN router in my apartment for accessing the Internet and sharing files between 3 PCs. For Security I have WPA-PSK (highest standard this relatively old router allows) and a MAC address filter activated. The whole setup worked fine for a couple of weeks, but recently I've been getting really bad signal quality, causing the network speed to drop down to 11Mbps (theoretically I should be at54Mbit/s). I noticed that my WLAN Card on my PC can see multiple other Access Points in the immediate area, so i changed the Wireless Channel setting in my router to a channel that wasn't being used by one of the other visible WLANs - which improved my speed for a while. The last few days multiple new WLAN Sites have popped up (guess i know what a couple of my neighbors got for Christmas ;-) ), and *boom* - my signal quality droped. Does anyone have any tips as what i can do to improve my WLAN signal quality?
I'm using a D-Link DI-624+, Rev. A with the latest firmware found on the D-Link website, my Pc has a cheepo Sitecom 54Mbit WLAN PCI card with the newest Firmware and Drivers installed.
Thanks in advance, Chris
