I have a Westell VersaLink Model 327W router for DSL. It works fine and I am able to connect wirelessly with an excellent signal--UNTIL my neighbors turn their cable router on. Then my laptop (Windows XP) tells me that there are more than one available wireless network connections and will no longer connect to the internet. I've tried to secure my connection to just my router, but I'm obviously not doing this correctly. Also, someone told me there is a way to change the router's frequency, so that you do not compete with a neighbor. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! :tazz:

yea, go into your router's config page and change it's wireless channel (thereby chaning it's frequency). The best one's are usually 1, 6, and 11. Also make sure your SSID is different than your neighbors.

Also, with the Windows Wireless Zero Configuration tool you can set it up to automatically connect to a certain network.

Also, make sure to turn on WEP and configure you rcard to connect with it,
