Have you checked? The problem would be "noticed" when you verify that
you have slower transfer rates than expected, which can be rather
difficult to figure out in a complex situation such as a house in an
urban environment.

Keep in mind that channels less than six numbers apart overlap to some
degree. So if only channels 1 and 12 are in use, channel 6 will be
pretty much interference free (from those two sources, anyway). But if 6
is also in use, channel 5 will mostly overlap with channel 6 and a bit
with channel 1. (This will still work, though, and it's still better to
use a channel as distant as possible from the others in a situation such
as this. Channel 3 or 4 would be a good choice. Or Channel 14, if you have
a Japanese unit. (North American units go up only to 12.)
