    Im having problems with wifi & internet d/c issues. I use 2 macs, ipad, iphone and a windows pc (and other non apple products like smart tv)

    Would using the main wireless network exclusively for apple products & Guest network for windows possibly fix or limit some interference?

    Appreciate any and all comments

    I don't have disconnecting issue with my windows laptop but my PC seems to be slow when connected to wifi from an airport extreme. My Macbook works fine with the airport. The PC is fine when I tried an Cisco router. This seems to suggest it is an compatibility issue. it is likely related to the intel wifi card I have on that PC because I tried another laptop with non-intel (I don't remember the brand) wifi card and its speed is fine. One thing I find is that the speed seems to be faster when I disable the 802.11n mode from the PC.
