    Find and Download inSSIDer. Install and make your wifi connection.
    Click the NETWORK tab to see all the nearby routers and the Channels they use.

    Then pick a channel with the fewest users.

    Then CHANNELs per se are not your problem. Try this
    get a command prompt and enter
    you should see
