where? (can't find anything with a quick look in google).
The wap works fine with no antennas. I can associate upto
about 10' away but no further. As soon as I put on the
rubber ducks, the wap goes dead. I tried a 15dbi antenna,
hoping to point it away from the interference, but the wap
was dead no matter where (az, el) I pointed the antenna. The
interference seems to be continuous. It's not the business'
portable phones (nominally 5.8GHz, but Pete Soper says one
of the links could be 2.54GHz), as the wap is dead with them
I don't know if the interference is in-band or out-of-band.
If it's in-band, it's not wifi, otherwise I'd detect it with
netstumber. Maybe it's microwave ovens. Will go look to see
if there's a pizza place next door. If it's out-of-band,
maybe I can filter it out.
If a spectrum analyser is available, I can tell if it's in-
or out-of band.
