Some sites?   You mean access points as in when you go out in public?

No doubt some places will still be on 802.11g, entirely possible some might even still be on b.

Not that it matters much.  Get a few people using most "free" public wifi connections and it's like going back to dialup regardless of which standard it is.

From my Tbook to my Modem Router Wifi ,it gets heaps of crc errors as i previously mentioned.

 

Thinking maybe it could be a protocol issue. With drivers on each end.

Might be interference from neibouring networks.  You should be able to change channel in your router settings.  Try one of the middle range like 7 or 11.

I have about 7 networks overlapping my house. Is their anyway to know what is using what channel.

NetStumbler on Windows will do the trick.

Chances are everyone else is using low channels, usual default.

Ye a lot of routers seem to be set to channel 1 from factory and very few people bother (or know how to) change it.

 

As for finding what channels are in use, apart from netstumbler there are smart phone apps that do the same.
