Re: wireless channel

Linksys routers have a built-in webpage server. You need to use your web browser to go to it's IP address. I think the default IP for Linksys is (type that in the address bar of your browser).

Once you get to the router's webpage I think you need to go to the "Wireless" section and there you should be able to change the channel. That's where I found the channel on my Linksys wireless router.

Good luck.

Re: wireless channel

The ethernet cable connecting the router to the WAN doesn't require a channel. The channel setting is there for when laptop computer connects to the wireless router.

Channels 6 and 11 are mostly used in this scenario.

Does your wireless router communicate with your Internet provider wirelessly?

Hope this helps :) Please leave a rating. Thanks..

Make sure they are both different networks. So for example configure the first for network and the other for Now plug an Ethernet cable from the 740n router (WAN) port into a (LAN)

Second method *This only works if the tl-740 router supports AP mode (Access point).
In the configuration of the 740 router, enable AP mode and make sure DHCP and nat are turned off if they are on. Configure the wireless to operate on channel 1 6 or 11. Name the SSID the same as the other router. Plug in Ethernet from WAN 740 to LAN on the other router.

Intermitence wireless

This can be caused by various issues but the first thing I would check is to change the channel your wireless router is broadcasing through. Many 2.4Ghz cordless phones, as well as microwaves can cause the signal level to drop in and out on your wireless devices. You have to access the web page for your router to change the channel and then you have to change the channel on your wireless device to match as well. It will be a trial and error process to determine which channel works best for your devices. There should also be step by step instructions in your user manual which will walk you through the process. Hope this helps

My dynex won't connect to my laptop

Try to change the channel first on your router. Access the router's admin page through and look for wireless tab and change the channel to 11. Save the settings. On your laptop, verify if your wireless settings is matching the router's wireless settings like the SSID and the security or encryption used.
