Just a quick question? can you change the channel on a Linksys WUSB100

I'm going to assume you are using a wireless router, and are trying to figure out how to change what channel you connect to it on.

All you need to do is change the channel on your wireless router, and the adapter will automatically connect on that channel.

Trying to connect with a wireless router. getting error code 51330.

This is a General Troubleshooting error code and does not have any one specific cause. You'll need to try the following steps to try to solve the problem.

1. Your wireless router sends out an internet signal using a specific "channel" (much like a radio broadcasts over the airwaves). You can change the "channel" that your wireless router uses to broadcast the internet signal manually. Nintendo suggests setting your wireless router to either channel 1 or 11, as these are supposed to be the fastest channels for download speed

This website has a guide that shows you how to change the channel on your wireless router -

2. In addition to the broadcasting channel, there is also a broadcast setting. This can be set to either "G", "B", or "Mixed." Nintendo suggests that the "Mixed" setting gives the best network connection, but you might need to try all three settings to get the best network connection.

3. Home appliances and other devices that are near to your console, like microwaves and cordless phones, might cause interference with your wireless network connection, so try turning these off. Other wireless devices like keyboards and computer mice can also interfere with your network connection.

Hi, the following started to happen: 1. Our wireless Internet recently started to develop problems. The signal drops and using the "View wireless network', our secured home network will not show...

It sounds like you have a problem with a conflicting Wireless signal in your area.

This is caused by another wireless network close by that is on the same channel (or within 5 channels higher or lower) than yours that is causing interference.

You can check this by performing the following:
1. check your wireless network at the moment and see if you can see what the channel number is that is being used at the moment, make a note of this.
2. switch your router off (making sure that any settings that you may have changed on the router have been saved first!).
3. browse for any wireless networks that are in the area, and make a note of the channel numbers that these wireless networks are on. You should find that there is another network on the same, or close to the same, channel number that your wireless network is on.
4. power on your wireless router.
5. whilst the router is coming back on, take a look at the networks that you have found and see if there is a channel that is available that is 5 different from everyone else (ie, if there is a network on channel 1, you will be looking to use channel 6, if there is one on 7 use channel 2, etc). If there is no completely clear channel you may need to try and just look at the strongest signals for a 'free' channel.
6. once your wireless router is back up, log on to the configuration page (may be best to use a wired connection if possible, to avoid disconnections mid-configuration)
7. find the wireless configuration page, and set the channel number to the one worked out in step 5
8. retry the wireless network and see if you get better performance and a more stable connection

Wireless networks are a bit picky when it comes to interference, and they ideally need 5 channels of separation, otherwise the carrier signals can interfere with each other. But with not being able to control your neighbours networks, it can be difficult to get a completely clear channel :)

The other thing to check for is if you have had a change around in the house, and perhaps bought a new appliance (such as baby monitor or cordless phones or a fish tank), as some items can throw out interference to conflict with wireless networks.

Hope that this information is of some assistance to you!

What is the best setting for my ps3 and what channel i shoud i us

You need to have a look at the other wireless networks around to know what channel you need to set your wireless network to.

The basic rule for wireless networks is that you should have at least 5 channels between your wireless network and the strongest wireless networks (so if you have a network near you on channel 1, then you need to set yours to channel 6). This is to avoid channel interference, sometimes it is not completely possible, just pick the strongest networks near you, and change yours to 5 different.

Once you have set your wireless router up, the PS3 will then connect to the wireless channel that you set.

Hope that makes sense! lol

Belkin N150 routerlooses connection when microwave oven is turned on.

HI ..,
The router would drop the wireless signals if you have any cordless phone,microwave.. .. so keep the router a little far away from the kitchen and wireless devices .. or else you can try changing the wireless channel to no 11 or 9 or 6 are the best wireless channel below is the steps

Wireless routers can broadcast on several different channels, similar to the way radio stations use different channels. In the United States and Canada, the three main channels are 1, 6, and 11. There are more channels on the router, but they "overlap." Similar to how you'll hear interference on one radio station while another is perfectly clear, sometimes one wireless channel is clearer than others. You don't need to change your computer's configuration, because it automatically detects the router's new channel.
In order for a wireless device to connect to a wireless network, it must know the network name, or SSID (service set identifier). If you plug your wireless router or access point in and leave the default SSID, it won't take long for an attacker to determine what the SSID is.
To change your channel and SSID:

  1. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports on the router.
  2. Open a web browser on the computer.
  3. In the address bar of the web browser, type and press Enter on your keyboard.
  4. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.
  5. Click on "Channel and SSID" in the left-hand column under the Wireless heading.
  6. The router may be set to auto for the channel selection. This means that the first time the router is powered on, it will automatically select the channel that has the least amount of interference. As surrounding networks are added, the initial channel may become crowded. Use the drop-down list and select a new channel for your router.
    Note: Channels 1, 6, or 11 are the best selections.
  7. After setting the channel, select the SSID box by clicking in it.
  8. Type a name that is familiar to you. This is the name of the wireless signal on which your router will broadcast.
  9. Once these changes have been made, click the "Apply Changes" button toward the bottom of the screen.

By default the channel is set to 6. The Channel can be changed to fit the channel setting for an existing wireless network or to customize the wireless network. The Auto Channel Scan setting can be selected to allow the WBR-2310 to choose the channel with the least amount of interference.

Rating: 85%, 88 votes hi,
Open the router page >> type this in the internet explorer address bar.
1. the Home Page is displayed. Click Wireless from the left menu
2.The settings to Wireless section of Router appear.Click Channel and SSID.
3.Changing the Wireless Network Name (SSID)
To identify your wireless network, a name called the SSID is used. The SSID is your network name. The default network name of the Router is Belkin N1 Wireless followed by six digits that are unique to your Router. Your network name will look something like Belkin_N1_Wireless_123456.
You can change this to anything you choose, or you can leave it unchanged. Keep in mind, if you decide to change your wireless network name, and there are other wireless networks operating in your area, your network name needs to be different from other wireless networks that may be operating in your area. To change the SSID, type in the SSID that you want to use in the SSID field and click Apply Changes.
The change is immediate. If you make a change to the SSID, your wireless-equipped computers may also need to be reconfigured to connect to your new network name. Refer to the documentation of your wireless network adapter for information on making this change.
4.Changing the Wireless Channel
There are a number of operating channels from which you can choose—in the United States, there are 11 and in the United Kingdom (and most of Europe), there are 13.
In a small number of other countries, there are other channel requirements. Your Router is configured to operate on the proper channels for the country in which you reside. The channel can be changed if needed. If there are other wireless networks operating in your area, your network should be set to operate on a channel that is different than the other wireless networks.
Select channel from Wireless Channel drop-down menu. Click Apply Changes.
5.Using the Wireless Mode Switch
This switch allows you to set the Router’s wireless modes. There are several modes. Note: Some modes may require firmware updates to be enabled.
1) 802.11g only
Setting the Router to this mode will allow only 802.11g-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out any slower 802.11b devices.
2) 802.11g & 802.11b
Setting the Router to this mode will let 802.11g- and 802.11b-compliant devices to join the network.
3) 802.11n & 802.11g
Setting the Router to this mode will allow N1/draft 802.11n- and 802.11g-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out any slower 802.11b devices.
4) 802.11n only
Setting the Router to this mode will allow only N1/draft 802.11n-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out 802.11g and 802.11b devices.
5) Off
This mode will turn OFF the Router’s access point, so no wireless devices can join the network. Turning off the wireless function of your Router is a great way to secure your network when you are away from home for a long period of time, or don’t want to use the wireless feature of the Router at a certain time.
Select wireless mode from Wireless Mode drop-down menu. Click Apply Changes.
6. Using the Broadcast SSID Feature
Note: This advanced feature should be employed by advanced users only. For security, you can choose not to broadcast your network’s SSID. Doing so will keep your network name hidden from computers that are scanning for the presence of wireless networks. To turn off the broadcast of the SSID, remove the check mark from the box next to Broadcast SSID, and then click Apply Changes.
The change is immediate. Each computer now needs to be set to connect to your specific SSID; an SSID of ANY will no longer be accepted. Refer to the documentation of your wireless network adapter for information on making this change
