What's the "ideal" channel for a wireless network. Thanks.
I set mine to 6, but you may be happier with a different one. All depends on how much interference you may get in your area.
6 is usually the default and that will work just fine in most cases. If you're noticing performance issues from nearby wireless networks and devices, then play around with the channels. A neighbors wifi network on the same channel, 2.4Ghz cordless phones, microwave ovens, and active nearby bluetooth devices could all be potential sources of interference.
edit: I recommend the excellent freeware program NetStumbler to discover and find out all sorts of neat info about nearby wifi networks including SSID, channel, detailed signal strength, and lots of other neat stuff.
