    Well after running around for 2 days attempting to find the source of the
    wireless points, it stopped.

    We think that someone was running FakeAP, perhaps by accident (playing
    around at home then forgetting to switch off), all the peer-to-peer Access
    Points were of the same name and all the MACs were not corrupted. We
    narrowed the signal down to a specific desk, but there were no devices in
    the area (and no power leads going into drawers anywhere)... can only
    assume it was a PDA or something.

    One of lifes mysteries.

    Thanks for all the on and off-line responses very informative.

    Colin.

    Though two devices within 10 feet <both setup in the same room> of another
    might well conflict with one another, and might be what the original
    poster on device contention was running into.

    Thanks,

    OK, so you're a Ph.D.  Just don't touch anything.
