Hi:

I'm not a radio engineer so I'm asking here: My network neighbourhood is getting crowded:

My current AP is MYNET, the AP is located right next to my BSD box that did the scan. It appears that there are others that actually provide better signal ??

First - how do I interpret the S:N numbers? Less negative S is better? Are there any units to this number?

Second, should I move to a different channel or is it irrelevant as long as I use 6 or 11 since S ~ N in most cases?

Thanks, Erik
