Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You should use either channels 1, 6 or 11 since they don’t overlap.

Netstumbler is free and can show you what other wifi devices might be close by and causing interference.

You might try to uninstall/reinstall your wifi card on the laptop as well.

Spectrum analyzers come time mind. Some software suites like Airmagnet are expensive, but it wouldn’t hurt to look into software like this.

    Does the computer having the trouble have a built-in network card or an external one?

    I would also like to know what type of connection it is connecting to, cable, dsl, mpls??? Cable modems are notorious for only allowing one mac to the internet.
