    We're currently on Camping Quinta Bella in Spain at the mo' We've been here 2 weeks and I have to say that the WIFI is rocket ship fast!
    However, over the past 2 days, another couple of vans have come on site and pitched in the area we are in and since then, another connection keeps popping up when ever I go to log on to the site wifi.
    It's name is.................
    TP-LINK_C445CO
    Every single time this connection appears in the available networks, the wifi (at least on my laptop) just dies! When-ever it disappears, the wifi seems to speed up again?

    So, bearing in mind that I'm a self confessed computer Luddite, my question is............
    is it possible for this other link to be "hogging" or "blocking" the signal to my laptop, or is it just coincidence................what-ever, it's FLIPPIN' frustrating!

    The tp link router could be using the same channel as the site wifi.. that could affect your connection a bit. It's more likely that others streaming hd movies are the cause of your slowness in reality.

    The MH with the TP-link router may be running it at full power and on the same channel as the campsite wifi therefore blocking your signal. If the camp site "WIFI is rocket ship fast" as you say then it should make no difference the other user downloading etc. Try taking your laptop across the the site wifi aerial and doing a speed test from there and that will confirm the above.
