I have been working on a friend's wireless Netgear N600 wireless dual band router WNDR3400.
Prior to me working with them on it they were unable to get a connection to their ipod.
Now they can connect but it is slow.

This is a dual band and the first network is setup as follows.
channel 6
up to 300
wpa encryption
The second is not used.

They have At&t dsl and were orginally setup to have the ppoe information on the modem. I switched it to be on the router tonight.

Are there any other settings on the router that can be adjusted to allow faster connection to their ipod?
Connections to their ipod had been tested away from their house.
They brought it over to my house and it worked fine.
I am using a dlink dir-655 router.

They have a neighbor next to them that has a large antennae in the back yard possibly for short wave radio.
I also noticed downloads from micrsofts website timing out with the error connection to the server was reset.
They have vista on their machine and I was trying to download the Windows 7 upgrade advisor.

You may want to change to a different wireless channel.
Install Netstumbler on a laptop and you'll be able to see all of the other signals.
Pick a channel that has the least traffic on it.
Note that the only non-overlapping channels are: 1,6 & 11
