Selecting the Best Wireless Channel

The Wireless Channel can be set to a value between 1 - 13. By default this is set to 5 (which presumably is for every Voyager 2110).

Are there any recommendations to which value this should be set to? How can I determine if changing this value improves or reduces performance?

Thanks,

Mo

Hi there,

If it aint broke dont fix it. You should only need to change the channels if you are experiencing difficulties with your network or a nearby wifi netwrok is interfering with yours or some other device is causing interferance.

If it is working now, I'd simply leave it.

Welcome to the forums by the way. Smiley

Agreed; my NetGear DG384GT was factory set to channel 11, I think - since my wireless phone and/or digilink and/or next door neighbour seemed to be interfering, I experimented, found that channel 6 worked ok, set all devices to that channel and left it alone.

Now, if I could only stop the damned Sky box changing channels by itself ...
