My poor old netgearDG834 Router fell over the other day so I thought I would treat myself to a new one. so I got the all singing all dancing 3700 dual band even makes the tea for you.
Ok Set it up no problem and using the inssider program for a few days dicided to put it on channel 3. Made sense as there were very few in that area.
Thats when the trouble started. i got intermittant connection to my laptops but could not connect the WDTV Live box. It said that there was an incorrect DNS Server Address.
I tried everything, changed everything to no avail. Used the inssider program and noticed that the signal was fading out and back in again, very strange.
So in desperation i set the channel number to Auto, it is now working perfectly !! The signal is solid and the connection to the WD box is fine.
So food for thought.
Now next problem, I notice that there are at least 6 routers all using Channel 6. so why is my router not changing ??
