 6. On the Wireless Basic Settings page, make the following changes:

  • Channel: change from Auto to channel with the least interference as determined by your wireless interference tests.

Notes

  • Wireless channels shouldn't have to be changed often (more than once every 6-12 months). If you find yourself making these changes too frequently, you may have to invest in a mid to high end router with additional channels on the 5Ghz frequency. Contact support@ncf.ca for recommendations if needed.
