I'd be happy if we could just get manufacturers to set their default  
base station channel to something other than channel 1, preferably  
above channel 6 .. at least move the people who don't know how to  
change their channel someplace where they don't QRM the weak signal  
folks.  I know of one 802.11b/g manufacturer that's moved from channel  
1 to channel 11, which is a start, but the rest could stand to follow  

Not sure what can be done about the WAP's on the NY network, but what  
can you hear on 2.4 GHz in downtown Manhattan?  I guess there's some  
bleed-over into Jersey, but when you get into areas quiet enough to  
need to avoid this stuff, you're out of line of sight and it's  
attenuated down below your noise floor .. if they're going upstate with  
this, then i can see potential problems, but if they're staying in NYC  
they're already in a pretty polluted RF environment ..
