How do i change my router channel


1. Connect the Linksys router to your computer with a Cat5 cable. To do so, connect the Cat5 cable to the LAN port on the back of the modem. Connect the other end of the cable to the Ethernet port on the computer. This allows you to access the Graphic User Interface (GUI) for the router.
2. Launch an Internet browser and enter "192.168.0.1" (without quotes) into the address field. Press "Enter" on the keyboard to load the GUI.
3. Enter "admin" into the username and leave the password blank. Press "Enter" on the keyboard to load the GUI settings. If you have changed the default username and password, enter this information instead of the default.
4. Access the "Wireless" tab and then select your desired channel in the drop-down box net to " Wireless Channel."
5. Click on "Save Settings" to save the router's updated channel settings.

How to achieve 300 Mbps speed in N standard routers ?


To achieve 300 Mbps speed in N standard routers:
In order to achieve 300Mbps speed between router and your wireless computer you must have an N standard router from belkin and also the wireless adapter on our computer should be an N standard (802.11n).

If you fulfill the above criteria then you can follow these simple steps to achieve 300Mbps speed between your computer and router.

  • Connect any Computer to the Router in one of the 4 ports named wired (usually grey in color) using an Ethernet cable.
  • Open internet explorer / Firefox any of your web browser (chrome will not support).
  • In the address bar type the default gateway address of Belkin router 192.168.2.1
  • Belkin router setup page (RSP) will be displayed.
Step 1: Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS)
In the Belkin router Setup page, on your left hand side, you will have Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) below WIRELESS. Click on Wi-Fi Protected Setup. If it prompts you for a login password, leave it blank and Click on Submit.WPS will be enabled by default. Change it to Disabled and Click on Apply Changes. It may or may not take some time to save the Information and brings you back to the same page.
Step 2: Security
Select Security found on left side of router setup page.Security mode will have the following options,
  • WPA / WPA2 (PSK)
  • 64-bit WEP
  • 128-bit WEP
  • Disabled
Now select this way.....
  • Select the security mode as WPA/WPA2.
  • Select the authentication type as WPA2.
  • Select the encryption type as AES.
Then you will be able to see the pre-shared key (PSK) or passphrase (PSK), in this box you need to type at-least 8 characters as the network password.
After typing the password you can verify the password by un-checking obscure PSK. Password is case sensitive. Once you are done check obscure PSK and Click on Apply Changes.
You need to enter the same password in your computer to get connected to your wireless network.

Step 3: Channel and SSID:
Once you are done with that select Channel and SSID found on the left side of RSP.
Change the Wireless Channel to 1 or 6 or 11 (these are the best non-overlapping channels for wireless networks).
Change the SSID to any name as you wish, this will be your wireless network name (I recommend you to use a single word of any length. It can have letters, numbers or combination of both).
Check whether the option Broadcast SSID is checked / enabled (it must be enabled).
Protected mode should be OFF.
Bandwidth should be selected as 20/40 or 20+40 MHz
Once you are done click on Apply Changes.
Now connect the computer to your wireless network.
It will be connected at a speed of 300Mbps.

  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.

How do I change the frequency of my router


Here are the steps to change frequency:

1. Open a web browser and type the IP address of the router into the navigation bar. For most routers, the IP address is 192.168.1.1.

2. Enter your username and password into the prompt. This is the administration password to access the router's console.

3. Click the "Wireless" tab. Select "Basic Wireless Settings." This opens a window with a "Channel" section. This section is where frequency settings are changed.

4. Select channel 1, 6 or 11. These channels provide the clearest signal since they do not overlap other channels. Click the "Save" button and close the browser window.

5. Reboot the wireless computers. A change in frequency drops wireless devices from the network. The computers need to be rebooted to find new network settings.

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 http://192.168.2.1 and press Enter on your keyboard.

My internet signal keeps going in and out. It is difficult to do anything. The internet and wireless lights are blinking on the router. Is the blinking normal?


blinking is normal coz it tells you that you have connection betwwen your computer and router. you have to check your ISP for the intermittent connection that you are getting. there might be reported problem in your area or there is a downtime in your ISP.

Yes you can change the router channel. Log into the router at 192.168.1.1. If you have not been here before the default username/password will be admin/admin. Check under your wireless settings which channel is selected and try another. They will all default to channel 6 I think. If a neighbour has the same router with the same default this could be causing your contention problems. You can download a manual for your router at www.dlink.co.uk. Good luck.
