  1. I just bought Linksys wireless N router, but I don't know what channel should I set it on?
    so can someone help me with this channel settings and let me know how it works?
    Thanks for any help

    hum; any channel will work, but that's the least important issue to be solved.
    for that issue, get a copy of Network Stumbler; it will discover ALL wireless
    systems in your environment AND report the channels being used. You should
    opt for a channel that is NOT active already :)

    I assume you have it installed and it is running; if not please report your status.

    If it's running, the be sure to consider these points:
    1) change the default password
    2) change the SSID
    3) STOP broadcasting the SSID [ this forces you to know it to make the first connection]
    4) get the MAC addresses of ALL your system (via ipconfig /all)
    5) restrict all access to KNOWN mac addresses
    6) enable encryption and document your access key
    7) BACKUP the settings (if available)

    ALL this work should ONLY be performed from a WIRED connected system.
