My Virgin Media wifi here in the Uk is suddenly playing up and dropping and reconnecting.  I have changed channels both on the 2.4ghz and 5ghz and it is having little effect.  Leaving aside the discussion about position of the cable modem router etc, my question is simple.

What is the command line to check what channel numbers are being used by neighbouring houses and generally what channel numbers are stronger in wavelength and in performance i.e. 1-13 for 2,4ghz and the longer list for 5ghz.

I need the command line on a mac and windows pc.  thx
