Hello,
I have a D-Link router, a WG311v3 Netgear WIFI card, operating on Channel 1 (in Australia). When I switch on the BRavia TV, my internet becomes very very slow and times out consistently. Help

I suspect interference -- fairly broad so changing channels on the router won't necessarily help but it's worth a try. Better to try to relocate the router away from the TV.

If the ISP is a cable service (and the TV is cable too) could this cause a slow down ? I've never heard of this but who knows ?

Fihart,

I have the TV and the Router in opposite sides of the house. However, when I switch the TV off, the network runs at top connectivity - almost instantaneous. I've tried to change the Channel to 11 (recommended for OZ), but couldn't on the D-Link it stays on channel 1 (perhaps theres som ehelp out there to chance channels on the D-Link).

I also have an Ethernet connection on the D-link as well; and that link runs OK. So I think the Bravia interferes with the signal.

Thanks!

The D-Link is probably set to select channels automatically. Personally, I don't care for the complexity and inconsistency between models of D-Link's menu designs.

I was going to suggest that the Sony may be producing interference on the mains circuit that's affecting the wireless -- if the issue is also affecting wired connections that idea has even more possibility. There could be a fault in the Sony's power supply. If you can borrow a similar type of TV (any flatscreen) see if the issue goes away when you substitute it for the Sony.

You didn't answer whether the ISP is cable or ADSL.
