I'm helping a relative resolve a wireless network issue.

When running inSSIDer, I notice the name of the SSID for the wireless router disappears and re-appears. Only the name, not the signal. The signal strength remains visible at all times and is in the range -40 to -30 dB.

I did notice there were several other networks using Channel 6. So I had the relative change to a different channel.

That seemed to resolve the immediate problem.

However, I'm still curious if the disappearing and re-appearing name is indicative of other problems.

Any guidance will be appreciated.
