    Default Are the Router wifi channels interfering?

    I'm using a TP Link TD-W8968 wifi router. Lately at night my speeds drop and sometimes it connects but it's very slow. I have an ADSL 8Mbps line and service provider is Vox.

    I have downloaded inSSIDer to check which other wifi routers are in my area.
    It seems like most of the time when the problems start there will be 2 other wifi routers in my area that I can see.

    On my router I'm using channels 1+5; the other 2 router are using channels 5+9 and channel 10.

    Can this be the cause of the problem or do I simply have congestion ?

    Tracing route to vox.co.za [196.41.6.140]
    over a maximum of 30 hops:

    1 1 ms 3 ms 2 ms ADSL [192.168.1.1]
    2 * * * Request timed out.
    3 23 ms 141 ms 23 ms 41.193.3.101
    4 24 ms 24 ms 22 ms 41.193.3.102
    5 25 ms 252 ms 24 ms 196.41.12.0
    6 67 ms 23 ms 25 ms 41.193.119.29
    7 26 ms 25 ms 24 ms 41.193.32.201
    8 238 ms 25 ms 254 ms 41.193.32.154

    They are overlapping. They should only be 1 6 or 11

    1+5 indicates a 40MHz channel, same for 5+9
