I have had a lot of interference problems with both my laptop and duet. The laptop is a macbook which is 802.11 enabled. Yesterday I purchased an apple extreme and an apple express (to work as an extender for the extreme). The configuration I originally chose was 802.11n (802.11 b/g) compatible. I figure that runs at 2.4 GHz. While the duet worked on that setting, I was still having a lot of interference problems with the laptop. So I changed the setting to 802.11n only (5 GHz). The laptop is now blazingly fast, but I can't connect to the duet. Is there any way to enable the duet to allow it to receive 5 GHz signals?

Linksys has a router that supposedly works simultaneously at 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz. And D-Link is coming out with one. Would that help me? One problem with these devices is that, unlike the Apple extreme and express, one can't purchase an extender to increase the range. I live in an old house with thick walls in an urban environment.

Any help would be much appreciated. Peter

Not directly, you could use a 5GHz bridge externally and connect it to the ethernet port.

Have you tried different channels @ 2.4GHz?
