Why is my Signal Strength at -61 and neighbors at -50.

One and sometimes two of my neighbors will have a stronger signal than both of my WIFI i bands. Does he use a wider channel on his band? Not critical just curious.

    @hopad, it could be something as simple as your neighbors have more powerful routers than yours, especially in the 2.4 band.  Its not unusual to see this.

    @Marc I use a Linksys WRT3200, could it have anything to do with channel width on stock firmware or TX Power when using DD-WRT?

    Thanks Marc. I am thinking they must be using one bad-%*# router because all of mine are flagships from Netgear and Linksys.
