Re: "Birdies" from Linksys Wireless router



Hey, lucky you!  Want to trade?  :)

I found one cable that was causing much of the noise--I got it down from about S7 (!!!) to S1-2.  Still a ways to go...

What hardware and firmware version are you running?  Mine is Version 5 hardware, with current firmware (some silly long number ;-) )

73,

Mark

I have the WRT54G Wireless router and find
NO birdies at 145.93 or anywhere in the 145 MHZ range.
