Change the Wireless Channel used by your Wireless Router

Most wireless connection problems are due to interference from other networks or appliances. You can change the wireless channel used by your router to try and avoid those interferences. Start by trying channels 1, 6, 11 or 13, then try all channels in between if necessary.

Wait for a few minutes each time after changing the channel to verify whether the signal has improved. As all environments are different, there is no easy method for doing this other than trial and error. The most appropriate channel will vary from home to home, depending on which channels other wireless devices in your area are using.

Select your wireless modem/router from one listed below.
