Question

How can I change the channel that my wireless router transmits on?

Answer

Here are solutions for five popular routers from different companies:

3com WL-537 and WL-537S

Go to http://192.168.1.1 and log in; the default password is admin. In the web-based configuration page, go to the Wireless tab then the Advanced Wireless subtab. You can select G-Only if you do not have any older devices that communicate using the old 802.11b (Wireless-B) setting. This is best for avoiding interference. Otherwise, leave Wireless Mode on Mixed. Next, change Channel Selection to 1 (interferes with X10 channel A) or 11 (interferes with X10 channel D). Once this is done hit Save then Apply/Restart.

Belkin F5D7230-4

Go to http://192.168.2.1 and log in; there is no default password so leave that field blank. In the web-based configuration page, click on Channel and SSID section, under Wireless. You can select 802.11g-Only Mode if you do not have any older devices that communicate using the old 802.11b (Wireless-B) setting. This is best for avoiding interference. Otherwise, leave Wireless Mode on 802.11g-Auto Mode. Next, change Wireless Channel to 1 (interferes with X10 channel A) or 11 (interferes with X10 channel D). Once this is done hit Apply Changes.
