Note: For 2.4Ghz, it is important to select only channel 1, 6 or 11 for optimal performance. These are non-overlapping channels
Note: For 5Ghz, it is important to select only 36, 40, 44 or 48 for optimal performance. These are non-DFS channels which are not subject to Radar Avoidance
For example: In the below detection, Channel 1 is the most preferred as there are only 5 other wireless detected with a 36/70 signal noise as compared to channel 6 or channel 11
Click on the desired channel button to use that channel.
