I have got a D-link router and although it is set to auto channel scan I changed the channel of the 2.4 ghz signal ( I've got 2 signals : 2.4 and 5 ghz ) from 2 to 9 because the connection of my Galaxy note tablet keeps breaking while skyping. (I don't have this problem with my laptop). Anyway inSSIDer is still showing channels 2 and 6 for the signals on my laptop. How do I change the channel on my laptop and tablet. Btw I've downloaded inSSIDer for android on the tablet but I can´t get any further than the guide.

Thanks for your replies guys.
I don't want to start a new topic but we've got 5 devices which are using the router. I'm thinking of buying a new router which can get the best out of my internet connection. Any suggestions? Any good site for a review? The sites I visited all have different results.
That's what my provider claims, 100 megabits not megabytes. Anyway speedtest gave me these results:
Btw I've tested it with my "antique" computer with Intel Celeron 3.33GHz processor; or doesn't it make any difference?
That's what the small b means, bits. A Capitol B would be Bytes.
Your aactual speed is 50Mps. Wicis about as good as it gets. Overkill for most folks.
Now, what was the problem again?? If I had that speed I'd be thrilled to ******** death.
I'm thrilled with my speed too so that's not the problem. The actual problem is that if I skype with my Galaxy note tablet the connection breaks every few minutes. I don't have that problem with my laptop or the pc mentioned above.
I haven't tried the tablet with any other router.
@StringJunky 100Mbs connection does exit. Have a look here:
Xhi is right in saying that I've got 50Mbs. My son mislead me by saying that we had chosen the 100Mbs connection. We've had it for such a long time and my memory isn't getting any better :)
I'm obviously slightly behind times but that speed is the state-of-the-art and not widespread...about 50 is the standard 'fast' at the moment I think. In contrast, I've just got a new HSPA+ 3.75G dongle which gives me 6-10 Mbps compared to my old one of 2-3Mbps and I'm like "wow"! :D The very fastest dongle in the UK at the moment realistically averages at 14Mbps apparently but capable of 42mbps when the network allows.
Not bad!! Verizon FIOS in Philadelphia, PA. Comcast says they are faster, I doubt it. I can get even more speed than that from FIOS, with their Quantum tier. But what would be the point?
