The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product.

A lot of wireless products in the US are shipped with a default channel of 6 like the Cisco Small Business router. If you encounter interference from other devices, change channels in order to get around these interferences. In order to change the channel your wireless network is using, go to the router's web-based setup page.
Change the Router's Channel
Step 1: Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
Step 2: When the router's web-based setup page appears, click Wireless.
Step 3: Look for Wireless Channel, and change it to your desired channel. The recommended channels are 1, 6, or 11 since they are considered non-overlapping channels.
