On the Network Graph I understand a Network Radio is centered above its channel and the amplitude represents its loudness and each channel overlaps its neighbors.
However, there’s a hidden network emanating from my Comcast Modem on Channel 6 and the graph goes from channel 4 to beyond 11. Why so wide and why are there 4 individual radios shown in the Networks Table, all on channel 6, each with a different mac address?
See attached image of my InSSIDer screen.
Secondly, I wish I could shut off this radio. It’s not the Xfinity Hot Spot channel as I already have that shut off. I guess it’s something else that Comcast does.
I think I figured out what the Comcast radio is.
First off, I shut down the cable modem, I have a separate WiFi Router, and the Comcast Hidden radio disappeared.
The 4 lines in the Network Table are just different SSIDs for the same radio. It’s a 40MHz wide signal so it covers 8 channels given that each channel is separated by 5 MHz.
When I turned the Comcast Modem back on it came up on channel 1 which is better because my 2.4 GHz radio is set for channel 11.
