Wireless Router Help!

Last response: in Wireless Networking

I have a Netgear wireless router and I've been having trouble with my internet connection, so I wanted to change the channel to see if that would help. I went to to see if I could change the settings. My region says Europe even though I live in the United States and I can't change it. (What does this mean? Does it matter?) The drop down channel menu only shows channel 6. The mode is on the default of Auto 108 Mbps. Please help. I don't know what to do. This stuff is out of my range of expertise.

The Europe setting may limit your wireless power but should be able to be set to US in Wireless Settings. If not I would press the reset on the router, which restores defaults and may allow you to select US.

In Wireless Mode untick Auto108 and select g this should permit selecting which ever channel works most strongly in your environment. Bear in mind that if you can detect strong neighbouring wifi networks, select a channel five or more stops from the strongest.

For more, see your router manual -- probably on CD which came with it or from netgear's support site.
