Someone else’s wifi signal is stronger in our house than ours?
Trying to find out why our wifi signal drops so much from the office where the modem & router are to the living room or kitchen. I have run several different wifi analyzing apps and they all agree. However there is one SSID coming from outside somewhere that is on channel 6 that actually has better signal strength in my house than I do. How is this possible. I can sit in my living room and run the analyzer and it shows this SSID with better signal strength than my own. It also happens to be unlocked. We’re using a Arris SB6190 Modem and a Netgear AC1750 dual band router. Maybe this outside device isn’t affecting us or maybe it is. Asking your experts out there what I can do. Should I move to the same channel they are on?
