That isn't really feasible for people who really need 2.4ghz wireless on all the time or for people who live in apartment blocks where there are lots of wireless signals floating around. Interesting idea though. Must try it out and see how well it works. For me personally I managed to almost eliminate the problem by using a really small (0.5m) optical cable for the connection that is heavily shielded and changing the channel on the wireless router to 11. Doing only one of those didn't work but doing them together fixed things. Obviously that is also not an idea solution if someone is needs a much larger cable. It's quite annoying sticking the transmitter right next to the computer because of the short cable.

Well, everyone has his own capabilities and therefore requirements...

That doesn´t work for me, as my flat is about 115m2 and I wanted to position the transmitter strategically in the center of the flat to get a good signal throughout the flat. Unfortunately that place is also the best place for the WiFi-router.

 

Anyway, will play again with the router in the evening. Although it has a DD-WRT firmware with a lot of settings options, I cannot change the channel to 11 - there is only the "auto" option possible. Need to dig into this to see if setting to channel 11 is possible and if it would the Sennheiser issue in my particular case.

 

Or I leave the 2.4Ghz switched off during "music times"... :)

Yeh that's fair enough. Different solutions for different people though if you needed to move one away the router is the better one to move to a corner somewhere. The RS220 will dropout at a much closer distance than the router. In that size apartment you should still get reception to all parts if it is in one corner of the apartment, especially with the 2.4ghz band. The 5ghz band might not do so well once you move it away from the centre however.

 

IIRC the channel 11 trick was first mentioned on here either in this or another RS220 thread. Seems to work for a lot of people and definitely helped me. Its been a while since I've used DD-WRT but I'm pretty sure the channel was changeable on the version I was using. Might be hidden somwehre in advanced settings or something.
