A750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router JR6150
This setting is the wireless channel used by the gateway. For the 2.4 GHz band, select
either Auto or a value from 1 through 13. For products in the North America market, only
Channels 1 through 11 can be operated. Do not change the channel unless you
experience interference (shown by lost connections or slow data transfers). If this
happens, experiment with different channels to see which is the best. The default setting
is Auto, which means that the router selects a channel automatically.
Note: When you use multiple access points, it is better if adjacent access
points use different channels to reduce interference. In the 2.4 GHz band, the
recommended channel spacing between adjacent access points is five
channels (for example, use Channels 1 and 6, or 6 and 11).
6. Select the mode from the Mode list.
Up to 300 Mbps is the default setting. Up to 54 Mbps supports 802.11g and 11b wireless
devices. The Up to 145 Mbps setting allows 802.11n devices to connect at this speed.
7. To enable SSID broadcast, select the Enable SSID Broadcast check box.
This feature allows the router to broadcast its SSID so wireless stations can see this
wireless name (SSID) in their scanned network lists. This check box is selected by
default, but you can clear it to disable broadcast of the SSID.
8. To enable wireless isolation, select the Enable Wireless Isolation check box.
This feature allows wireless clients (computers or wireless devices) that join the network
to use the Internet, but they cannot access each other or access Ethernet devices on the
9. Specify the security option.
You can change the wireless authentication and encryption option and the password
(also referred to as the wireless network password or network key). The security that you
select encrypts data transmissions and ensures that only trusted devices receive
authorization to connect to your network.
NETGEAR recommends that you do not change the wireless
security option or the password. Do not disable wireless security!
