Hi guys, i seem to be having problems with my wifi, i use a netear dgn3500 rooter which is wireless n and have a wireless n adapter also. My wifi seems to continually drop so i was planning on changing channels i uses issd to see who was using what channel and it seems 1,6,11 are all used by others. Any idea which i can use. See here http://i51.tinypic.com/2m4vbk0.png shows the usage
It seems to be a common problem with that model. Check out the reviews on Newegg for your router, they mention it.
In general I recommend getting a wireless router that will do 5ghz. The 5ghz band has 20 non-overlapping channels, unlike 2.4ghz's 3. If you use wide-channel/high-throughput/40mhz, then you still have 8 non-overlapping channels. In addition, because routers that will do 5ghz cost more, a lot fewer people use it. It is especially good in areas with lots of access points like apartments.
