You need to understand that WiFi is just radio and it can have as many problems as any other radio channel. The one critical part is the number of WiFi devices are attempting to use the channel. And this doesn't mean the number of devices in your home. Radio is radio and it can go anywhere within range so it also includes the WiFi devices in adjacent houses, apartments, buildings, etc.

I know, i have changed the wifi radio channel to the best one that wifi analyzer says. But it doesn't make sense when every device in the house is getting 400+ but my pc.
