For example, you can use the "Wireless Channel" drop-down menu to set the channel to one that might get better reception in your home or office. Which channel gets the best reception depends in part on other networks nearby, but D-Link says channels 1, 6 and 11 often get good connections. You may have to uncheck the "Enable Auto Channel Scan" option to set the channel on your router. When you're done, click "Save Settings" and ensure you can still connect all the devices to your router.

Look for a recessed button labeled "Reset" and press and hold it for about eight to 10 seconds using a paperclip or something similar.

You might have to reconfigure the router's wireless settings afterward if you were not using the defaults.
