If you are setting up a wireless router then its worth doing a scan to see
what channels might already be used and going for a free one. If you have
trouble connecting then its worth changing channels at the router.
Fred & Brian-
In addition, The channels are broader than the channel spacing. Each
channel overlaps 2 adjacent channels on each side. To avoid
interference, your router needs to be 5 channels away. That is one
reason you often find routers on channels 1, 6 and 11.
One way to do a scan of nearby routers, is to use a "stumbler" program.
(I use iStumbler for the Macintosh.)
