How to Choose the Best Wi-Fi Channels for Your Network

All Wi-Fi network equipment including client devices and broadband routers communicate over specific wireless channels. Similar to channels on a traditional television, each Wi-Fi channel is designated by a number that represents a specific radio communication frequency.

Wi-Fi devices automatically set and adjust their wireless channel numbers as part of the communication protocol. Operating systems and utility software on computers and routers keep track of Wi-Fi channel settings being used at any given time. Under normal conditions, users don’t need to worry about these settings. However, users and administrators may wish to change their Wi-Fi channel numbers in certain situations.
