How do i change the "channel" of my wireless internet?

Posted by on

  • flocox Dec 07, 2008

    I am having the same problem with my Belkin. My network does not show up in Available connections and the troubleshooter suggests I change the channel to 1 and reset, if that doesn't work then try 6 and reset. It is on 11 now.

    I have a Netgear WGR614v6 router.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

The belkin USB adaptor does not appear to have a channel selection option. Like most WiFi adaptors it scans and connects to the available networks assuming the security matches.

What you need to do is change the BROADCAST channel in your router or access point. If you are unsure how to do this I suggest you post the make/model and I'll try to assist you.

Ensure you use 1-11 as this adaptor does not support ch 12 or 13 wheras some routers do.

You may find the NETSTUMBLER prorgam useful in finding a free channel to use.

    It appears that your Wii console's Internet connection may be affected by wireless interference. Try the following:

    • Change your wireless router's channel to 1 or 11
      Changing the wireless channel on your router may help. Most wireless routers have a channel range of 1 through 11. The best channels to try are usually 1 and 11, as they do not overlap with other channels. Typically, the channel settings for your router will be found in the router's main "Wireless" tab.

    • Where is your wireless router located?
      Move your router away from walls and off the floor and try to place it in a central location in your home. Also, keep it away from metal objects such as metal filing cabinets which can cause interference.

    • Look for other devices
      Noise from cordless devices (cordless phones), or wireless electronics (wireless keyboards, headphones, cell phones), especially those using the 2.4GHz frequency, can interfere with your wireless signal. Also, older microwave models can cause wireless interference. Avoid electronics that use the 2.4GHz frequency, instead look for devices that use the 5.8GHz or 900MHz frequencies.

Laptops connect to router but still cannot get on internet


It's just a wireless interference problem. All you need to do is change the wireless channel of your router. Login to the router's admin page and look for wireless channel under the WIRELESS tab. Change it to channel 11 and save the settings. That should solve your problem. You can play around with different channels and check which one is the best for your environment. Good Luck!

Cant get internet connection on my laptop


You need to change the wireless channel on your wireless router. Using your wired computer, open the router's setup page by going to internet explorer and type http://192.168.2.1 and press enter. It will prompt you for username and password. By default the username is admin and leave the password blank. Look for wireless tab and look for wireless channel. Change it to channel 11. Make sure to take note of the Wireless Security key as well under wireless security tab. Save the settings after changing the wireless channel. On you laptop, make sure to disable any firewall then try to reconnect to the wireles network.

Router loses connection to Internet


Note : The steps below are applicable only for Belkin routers.
  1. Open an Internet Explorer window on your computer and type in http://192.168.2.1 in the address bar. This will take you to the Belkin router's web based configuration page. If you are not able to open the page click here.
  2. You will get a login page. Leave the password blank. Click Submit .
  3. On the left side of the page, click Channel and SSID below Wireless .
  4. The wireless channel on the Belkin router is set to Auto by defualt. Change the wireless to a static channel. Click Apply Changes .
  5. Click Logout in the top right hand corner.
Note: The wireless card in the computer will automatically detect the change in channel number on the router and will update the channel on the card.
CauseYou are not able to connect wirelessly mainly due to environmental interference. When the wireless channel is set to auto, the router will cycle to though channels when it detects significant interference. When the router changes channel the wireless connection will reset itself and disconnect all wireless clients connected to the router. SummaryWireless signals are prone to interference from cordless phones and electrical appliances (e.g., vacuum cleaners, microwave ovens). This is the reason wireless connections can drop. This article explains how to overcome frequent wireless disconnections by changing the channel number (frequency) on the Belkin router.
