How do I change the channel on my DI series wireless router?

In the 802.11b/g (2.4Ghz) standard there are 11 channels (US) to choose from, all but three are overlapping channels. Channels 1, 6, and 11 are the only non-overlapping channels. The channels can be changed to avoid interference from other wireless devices that run on the 2.4 Ghz frequency range (I.E. 2.4Ghz cordless phones, bluetooth, and X-10).

Step 1 Open your web browser and type the IP address of the router in the address bar. The default IP address is 192.168.0.1. At the login, enter your username (admin) and password (default password is blank).

Step 2 Click on the Home tab at the top of the configuration page and then click the Wireless button on the left side.

Step 3 Select a channel from the drop-down menu. For best results, use channel 1, 6, or 11.

Step 4 Click Apply and then click Continue to save your settings.

In most cases, you only need to change the channel on the router. Most wireless adapters will "find" your wireless network by the SSID you assigned to the router, and then will automatically lock onto the channel of the router.
