Some modems included with your Shaw
internet service also function as wireless routers. Wireless routers allow a variety of devices to connect to the internet without using a network cable. A wireless router communicates with wireless devices much like walkie-talkies. By using a network that communicates on distinct channels to minimize interference from competing devices and other networks. Channels take a wide frequency like the 2.4 gigahertz that is common to most wireless home electronics and break it down into smaller parts like the channels on your TV. If there are too many local devices using the same channel you may experience degraded wireless internet performance. While your modem will automatically change channels in an attempt to minimize interference you may be able to improve your local wireless performance by manually changing the wireless channel for your network. There is no one universal best channel, and the process of finding the optimal channel for your home will require some trial and error, as interference will vary from one home to another, and the channel will need to be selected to suit your home environment.
