The Link Quality again !
I was thinking that addition to the sun light, one possible reason of my
poor link quality can
actually be the microwave oven. I had never think about that before. But I think that all of my neighbors has that thing.
My wlan computer is about 6 meters from my microwave oven and 2 meters
above it. My antenna is at 7.5
meters high and above the tin roof. I start my microwave oven and about 10 seconds the link quality
start to decrease from 24 to 12. At the same time the Bit rate drops from 11Mb/s to 1Mb/s. When I
stop the oven, the wlan link remai to the state it was before the test !
My wlan frequncy is 2.457 Ghz and my microwave oven frequency is 2.45 GHz. That is not fun !
There might be two resosons:
It seems that the wlan signal is quite a sensitive to all kind of disturbance.
