 Good afternoon Mark. I had the same 'birdie' problem with switches over the 
years. I now have a hybrid Linksys router model number wrt54gs. I've had 
this router in the shack for years, and never had a 'birdie' problem, even 
on S band. What is also great about this router is you can download free 
firmware to extend it's range, if needed. I will need this feature at my 
girlfriends house where she has a lot of neighbors competing for the 
wireless channels. I just bought one for her place for $46 at Wal-Mart 
today. When I get it installed , if needed, she will have a big signal.
