Wireless Link Degraded

By thomas.barr ·
What would cause a 3 computer Wireless Network to lose signal strength from one night to another. It seems my wireless signal has degraded overnight by about 10 feet.

RF is an interesting phenomenon.

Any number of external events can cause problems.

A neighbor installing a Wireless LAN could impact your LAN.

Atmospheric conditions can play a roll.

A new power line, cell phone tower, or TV transmitter can cause interference.

Even a new neighbor, or a new appliance in the neighbor-hood can add noise either in the air, or to the AC power line.

It can be a real pain to track down and eliminate the cause of reduced signal strength.

Even the antenna connection coming loose at either end can impact the coverage area.
