Router Transmitting on different channels.

Hello.

I have a video baby monitor that transmits on a digital network and is interfering with my Verizon router. How can I configure my wireless router to transmit on channels other than the ones listed below?

Channel A: 2.410 GHz
Channel B: 2.441 GHz
Channel C: 2.468 GHz


Thank you.

changing the broadcast channel is under Wireless, Basic Security Settings in router admin.

You have a choice of 1 - 11 or automatic, I have no idea what the frequencies are, maybe somebody else can help you with that or just try them 1 by 1 and see what works

Wireless LAN in the Verizon Router should use one of the following channels.  This is the frequency of each channel as well.

1, 6, 11.

1 is 2.412

6 is 2.437

11 is 2.462

These are referred to what are called non-overlapping channels.  If you use anything in between you probably won't see much of a difference.  In any case if you refer to the following link you can see what frequency each channel is at:

Here is a link to a Wikipedia entry that shows all of the channel frequencies used for wi-fi:

Maybe this will help. although just taking a quick look it appears you may have trouble finding a channel dthat won't conflict. But of course you can try each channel, one at a time, and see if there is one that does not conflict with your specific setup.

Hope this helps.
