N600 WiFi Dual Band Gigabit Router
4. Select Wireless.
You can specify the settings for the 2.4 GHz band and for the 5 GHz band.
5. In the Region menu, select your region.
In some locations, you cannot change this setting.
6. To control the SSID broadcast, select or clear the Enable SSID Broadcast check box.
When this check box is selected, the router broadcasts its network name (SSID) so that it
displays when you scan for local WiFi networks on your computer or wireless device.
7. Leave the Enable 20/40 MHz Coexistence check box selected.
8. To change the network name (SSID), type a new name in the Name (SSID) field.
The name can be up to 32 characters long and it is case-sensitive. The default SSID is
randomly generated and is on the router’s label. If you change the name, make sure to
write down the new name and keep it in a safe place.
9. To change the wireless channel, select a number in the Channel menu.
In some regions, not all channels are available. 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.
When you use multiple access points, it is better if adjacent access points use different
channels to reduce interference. The recommended channel spacing between adjacent
access points is four channels (for example, use Channels 1 and 5, or 6 and 10).
10. Click the Apply button.
Your settings are saved.
