Thread: Getting odd readings close to generator

    Default Getting odd readings close to generator

    Tried this twice, both times getting odd readings. Wi-Spy problem?

    It appears to be interference from the generator which is quite common. If it is causing performance issues try shielding the generator. I have a 13kw generator that I put in a Faraday cage because of similar issues.

    It appears that the generator is not the culprit. We turned it off to test and see if there would be impact on results. Similar readings were made with generator off. It is also strange that with noise floor being up so high 2.4 ghz 802.11n channel has low ping and proper throughput immediately in the vicinity of the area. Could chanalyzer or wi-spy be causing the false readings?

    I doubt very much that the readings are false. The signal is a lot higher than the noise floor. That is why the performance is nominal.

    You may be correct, but I still cannot explain the readings.

    Cheers!

    Definitely out-of-band interference of some sort. We've got a bit about this in our knowledgebase.
