Multiple Wireless Devices in Home

I'm currently running a Linksys 2.4 GigHz Wireless computer network in my home thats giving access to 2 laptops. I'm in the process of looking at getting a wireless cable tv transmitter. The only problem is that the wireless cable tv transmitter also works over 2.4 GigHz.

Is there something I can do with my home wireless computer network so that it wont interfear with the cable tv transmitter? How do others have multiple wireless devices in a home and make a wireless computer network work around it?

You can have multiple wireless networks in the same area. If you start to notice interference between the two just change the channels on the wireless networks. The best channels to use are 1, 6, and 11

here is a link with more info

I would not use channel 6, as that is the default for most WIFI routers.....

And dont be afraid to have touse other channels, based on other types of interference in the home (cordless phones primarily), as it might be needed.

I agree with johnb676 most wifi routers use channel 6 by default. If you need to channels that do not overlap us 1 and 11. those are the only two channels that do not overlap ever

Yes the only way to avoid interference is using the nonoverlapping channels with proper power setting  so that the the coverrage remains in your specified area only.
