I think this is a simple yes/no question but I may be wrong. I work in a warehouse sized building where 4 networks are broadcasting but only 1 is being used, as in, no one logs in to the other networks.
The question is, will this cause collisions or conflicts for the users/network that is being used?
Edit: Sorry, first post here and was just 'given' the network. I'll have to check the WAP's specifically but they are within range of each other but all on Ch 11 of the 2.4 GHz range. Eventually, these networks will be split and used but as of now we only have traffic on 1 of the 4.
Our office building has the these networks all on different channels.
The better question may be "Will I see improvement on the used network if I stop the broadcast of the unused or change their channels?"
