Router Channels

  manrow 08:51 21 Mar 08

A number of posts on this site referring to reception problems have sometimes been recommended to change channels.

From memory on the 2 occasions that I have set up a router the recommendation has been to use one in particular in the UK. Does it really matter or can I select any?

You can use any, manrow. If everyone in the UK used the same one, you would probably have problems interferring with your neighbours.

I changed to another channel (at random), and a popup reported low reception.

How can I check reception other than by selecting them all in turn?

I'm affraid it will have to be trial and error
