You need to access your router IP page to change frequency channels, the default IP page address is 192.168.2.1.. Open a web browser and type that address into the url, that should take you to your routers IP page. There are many settings in there you don't want to mess with if you don't know what they mean, now scroll down to wireless settings after gaining access into your router. There you will find channel options, I'd pick channel 11 also if you have a smart phone you can download an app of the google play store called WiFi analyzer. In that app it will show you how crowded channels are around you, most are on channel 1,6.
You change the channel in the router's wireless setting. This does not give you a stronger signal BUT you can select a different channel so you do not get interference with other wireless routers in your area that are broadcasting on the same channel.
To change the channel, look on page 10 of the user manual for directions on how to access the web interface of the router. Once you get logged-in to the router, you can then go to page 22 to change the settings for the channel. You'll want to disable "Enable Auto Channel Scan" and choose 802.11g as the "802.11 Mode". Then choose the channel you require from the "Wireless Channel" selection.
Hi susanwhitbou !
To change the wireless channel, type in your browser address bar : 192.168.0.1
If you haven't changed them, your username and password should be admin and blank.
Next, when you see your router's setup page, press on Manual Configurations, and then on Wireless Setup.
Now, in order to change the channel manually, untick the box that says Auto Channel Scan. After you'll do that, you will be able to change the channel by pressing on the drop down box that says Auto Channel Scan.
Hope that helps,
Try to position the two closer together. Also try changing the channel the router is broadcasting on, you may have a phone or something that is using the same channel and causing conflict. You can change the router channel in the router settings. Try to use channel 1,6, or 11.
