hi when i look at my wireless config and rescan i see 3 connections 1) my own chanel 9

2) neigbour chanel 5

3)neighbour chanel 9

i changed mine to 6 to keep a seperate chanel but no matter what i change it to 3) neighbour changes to the same as mine what is happening thanks Chippy

Neighbour's router may be configured to set the Channel number automatically, but I don't know why it should always alter to the same one that you're using. Is being on the same channel actually causing you a problem, such as an unstable wireless connection?

If your broadband connection is not secure (your wireless config should show whether it is or not) maybe your neighbour is using it also? Just a thought.
