By default, the wireless channel set on the router is Auto. In an environment with little or no other wireless networks are around, this setting is fine. But in a busy environment, you can always select 1, 3, 6 or 9 as the wireless channel.

 

As a general rule to follow if you perform a site survey and there are more than 5 wireless networks around you, it is best to manually assign a channel to the Router.

Try channels 1 and 11 if 6 is a little crowded, as these are non-overlapping channels.  :smileyhappy:  Leave the Channel width to auto.
