Interference on my WIFI SSID finder


[link to this post]
 
Im getting quite a lot of drop out on my wireless connection. I think there maybe a clash of Channels broadcasting as there are quite a lot of WIFI networks in my area.

There is a website you can visit which installs a java applet for scanning wifi networks in your area and it also shows which channels are being used. Does anyone have the link as i cant remember it or a similar website?

Cheers

If you have a Windows computer the best free tool is inSSIDer - but its a download and run:
