Thread: Sudden bursts/peaks

  1. #1

    Default Sudden bursts/peaks

    I am checking signals from neighbouring properties - I'm on channel 1 at -40dBm which is far and away the strongest local signal. However a neighbour is on the same channel at -90dBm, with occasional bursts (several seconds long) peaking at -10dBm. I'm not sure if this is confusing my router or computers. Any ideas what might be causing this?

    Default Wi-Spy Recording

    Hi Julian, and welcome to the forum!

    I'd be happy to help you. Will you attach a Wi-Spy recording or screenshot so we can see what you're seeing please?

    I see the exact same behavior from several AP in my neighborhood: low level then periodically "off the chart" at -10db. What is the cause?

    Edit: I see there is another thread on the same topic with an answer: "very high RSSI values nearby networks"

    Other signals in the area jump to a peak of -10 when they are actually below -100db! I have at least 3 local to me that are SO weak that they constantly peak at -10db! I turn those signals off, it's the only solution at the moment.
