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.
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.
