RE: How Do I Change My Channel?

How do I change the channel because there's too much traffic. I want to move to channel three because it's empty and I really want my Skype calls to stay connected.

Re: How Do I Change My Channel?

You want to use only channel 1,6,11

Google inssider and survey around you for the best channel but 3 or other channel will overlap with it

- Log in to your router's GUI by browsing to routerlogin.net.
- Enter admin (as username) and your administrator password for the router.
- Go to Wireless Settings and change the channel.
- Click Test to test, and Apply to apply changes.
Suggestion: Browse to support.netgear.com and get the PDF User Manual which has this and more. Smiley Wink

What country are you in? As June suggested, in the USA you are limited to channels 1 to 11, and all other channels overlap with one or the other of 1, 6, and 11. Some other countries/regions can use 1 to 13 (eg. UK).

As June said, inSSIDer is a good free utility to help you scan and determine what's the best channel to use. Smiley Happy
