Hi Guys,

I've just got a Cisco SRP527 Router. Below is a graph of the WIFI signal strength using Wifi Analyzer.

My Router is red, my neighbours is Blue. As you can see my signal drops off at a specified period (its about every 3 secs.

This is not obvious when using my wifi devices, everything stays connected as normal. The only thing I can think of is the SSID is hidden, but this never happened on my hidden linksys wifi.

Is this something I should be worried about? Is there a setting I could check/Change?

That app has never worked right for me. It would not show one of mine despite being only a meter or so away from it, then suddently it would show at full signal.

Other times it would only show my netgear one downstairs which is on the ADSL router that I only use when troubleshooting my firewall machine, and not the other APs of mine. As soon as I close wifi analyser then android itself would see the APs and connect fine. Sometimes it would go 10-20 seconds not showing some networks which were there.
