Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
1) I have a Linksys router in my home and was having connection problems. After a little research I have found out some things that you can do to make the best connection possible. First use a program called Network Stumbler and scan the wireless networks within your reception area, note what channel your network is on as well as surrounding networks. Write down what channels are being used. Also note the SSID names.
2) Next log into your router's administration account and navigate to the wireless settings. If there is another network nearby with the saame SSID as yours (which could have been left as default settings from the factory) then you will need to change the name of your wireless SSID to something else. I had to do this on my network.
3) Click on the advanced settings and change the channel to one that isn't being used by another network nearby. Example if your network is on channel 4, and so is your neighbor's, then I would change it to channel 6 to put a little space between networks. You have between 1 to channel 11 to pick from.
4) If you have done the above things and are still having connection problems, network interference can be caused by cordless phones, microwave ovens and any electronic that work around the 2.4 Gz range.
