Roughly where would I look on devices to find what channel they use?
We basically have 2 Samsung Galaxy S3s and the new kindle that connect to wifi
The channel is configured at the router.
1. Logon to your router. (should be http://192.168.1.1/
2. Find "Wireless" near the lower left side.
3. At the "General" tab ensure you have the correct Band select, should be "2.4 Ghz" not "5 GHz".
4. Check the control channel. Could be "Auto" or a number from 1 to 14, depending on region.
5. Best to select 1 and if you have other routers set the next to 6 and the last to 11.
Suggest to avoid 12 or higher as they are not supported by all clients as these channels are not permitted in all countries.
6. For better overall coverage better disable dual channel.
Set Channel Bandwidth to "20 Mhz".
Trying to go higher when you have a large area and/or thick walls is actually more trouble than benefit.
7. Select "Apply" button bottom middle.
You might wish to also check the 5GHZ.
This is good for closer clients only, same room or only thin walls, it has less reach.
This will work if you have clients that support 5Ghz AND you only use near the router, otherwise just leave it.
Go to step 3 and select "5ghz"
Set Channel as Auto and Channel Bandwidth to 40Mhz.
