Do you have and accesspoint or a router?

Is the computer working wireless or wired?

which i plugged the USB stick

What USB stick?

My gateways are 1 and 11

Gateways should always end in .1. Are you perhaps talking about a wireless channel?

Are you getting a good signal on that PC?
Are you runing any type of encryption on the access point?

You mean you are using Channels 1 and 11. Yes, 6 is the default but it shouldn't matter if you use that or not. If you are in a populated area, Channel 6 is most likely being used by another access point and would cause excess traffic on that channel.
