changing channels on wireless router

I have a Linksys WRT150N router.  I am trying to get my wii connected to it, but keep getting an error code.  Following all of the advice given here: I am on step 4, attempting to change the channel.  This is where the problem comes in.  I don't see anywhere on the actual easylink advisor that I can change it.  I can view my wireless network settings and see that my channel is set to 3.  So, I went to the website: When I go into basic wireless settings, there are 6 things that I can set.  If I have my radio band set to auto, I can't change either my wide or standard channels.  If I set it to Wide, I can change the wide channels to any channel between 3-9.  There is no option for 1 or 11 as suggested by the wii people...
Even still, I tried it and switched it to another number, but when I went back to view my settings in the easylink advisor, it still said that my channel was 3.  What am I doing wrong??  I just want to connect my wii!

For Wireless Settings, please do the following : - Click on the Wireless tab - Here Wireless Network mode should be mixed - Provide any name in the Wireless Network Name (SSID) box, all in lower cases without any spaces in between. - Set wireless channel to 11 - And wireless SSID broadcast should be Enabled and then click on save settings. Please make a note of Wireless Network Name (SSID) as this is the Network Identifier. For Wireless Security : - Now Click on the Sub tab under Wireless > Wireless Security. Change the Wireless security mode to WEP Encryption should be 64 bits. Leave the Pass phrase blank, don't type in anything. And under WEP Key 1 type in any 10 numbers please.Click on save settings. Please make a note of WEP Key 1 as this is the Security Key for the Wireless Network.
