Wireless Channels

Recommended Posts

They don't do anything special. They're there incase someone is tapping you're channel and stealing your internet, or if you have multiple wireless channels throughout your house. They're just like the flash button on your telephone.  :-P

Try moving you're computer closer to your wireless router to get a better signal, Objects like tv's with antenna's have been known to disrupt wireless signals. Although you could just buy a new antenna for the wireless router, or get a cable and direct connection for maxim speed. But if you're stealing the cable, I recommend not talking about you're connection ;]

you may want to use a wifi 802.11 scanner application like NetStumbler

and use an rf channel that is not in use by other 802.11 routers within your line of sight

myself on my netgear router I use rf ch 2 and works well

cordless tel's and other devices may interfer with the signal or channel you are using

so play around and get/use a rf ch. that gives you the best signal and connection speed

good luck

my 2 cents - jeff

The reason for the different channels id to comabt interference between other wireless networks and devices that run in the same 2.4Ghz range.  I have always move my equipment off of channel 6 to 11 because the speeds are a little better and the high/low channels are normally a littlw cleaner as far a other devices go.
