your adapter's receiver will lock onto the strongest of the two signals, and that would be from the very local War Driver's position. this is a very common thing to happen.Charlie wrote: ↑Tue Oct 23, 2018 3:13 pmI would have thought that if my router were sending out a signal at 30dBn then what would happen is that I would likely see two AP's with the same name. One genuine the other the imposter. I understand how the receiving radio can be swamped but I am still transmitting a powerful signal of my own, how is that swamped.
I am quite sure, you have driven down a highway with your FM music radio listening to your favorite FM radio station, and suddenly the music disappears and your hear people talking. On the same channel you are tuned to. this can happen quite rapidly as the car moves along the road. It is related to the Wavelength of the signal and the placement of the barriers along the road.
the 1st signal temporarily is overcome by the 2nd signal which is stronger for a brief instant.
