Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router
I had a similar problem. I live in an apartment complex and there are many wireless networks all competing with one another. I changed the channel on my router to Channel 8, and have had no further problems. The default channels for most home routers are 1, 6,and 11. So, most users just power up their new routers and are up and running without realizing that there maybe 15 other routers in range on the same channel that are interfering with one another. You can download a trial version of PassMark Software's Wireless Mon application to see which channels are heavily used at your location. Then pick one that is ideally 2 channels away from any heavily used channel and set your router to this channel.
