Didn't you ask this same question on alt.internet.wireless? If it wasn't

Why do you have a router named "linksys"? Give it a real essid. Then stop
giving it a channel number. Channel numbers are for ad-hoc mode - you
should just be trying to access it via essid, and since half the APs in the
world are shipped with the name "linksys", you're as likely to find a
strong signal through your window as the weaker one that's going through
the walls and floor of your house.
