    Best Wireless Channel For Linksys WRT54GS?

    I have a Linksys Wireless Router model number WRT54GS? I have 11 wireless channels to pick from. Is one channel better than another? Does one have a stronger signal? I know that cordless phones use the 2.4ghtz band. Any ideas?

    If you have no interference, then default Channel 6 should be okay. If you have interference tehn start moving to either end of the spectrum (Channels 1 & 11) and work your way back to the middle until you find a good signal.

    I started out on Channel 6 which was the default and now I am trying Channel 11. I really can't tell any difference. Eric I checked out that article you put the link up for and it is very informative. Thanks!
