It appears that WiFi deviates a lot from the Plug-n-Play solution I had in mind. Just yesterday I helped a friend resolve her WiFi connectivity issues, by moving the channel allocated on her router from the default selection of automatic (which was apparently broken, since it left her on the busy Channel 1).

As always, Google and Wikipedia are our friends:

Rule of thumb is to try and use channel 1, 6 or 11 in order to avoid overlapping.
