Make sure that your SSID and channel are unique. I have seen some
flaky wireless behavior at my dad's house. It turns out that he has
two neighbors that each use the default SSID and channel number for
Linksys routers. I tried to hop onto one neighbor's network. But
since his house is in between the two neighbors, I think I was getting
some crazy collisions.
