According to inSSIDer I am using channels 12+8.
I know this shouls be channel 1,6or 11.
So I changed it to 11. It is now 11+7.

What is this +7 number and does it matter.

Above 11 is not for US users. Your router (no make of model given) should have a list or choice for REGION CODE, my ASUS does and 1- 13 is for Europe. You should change the REGION CODE (assuming you are in the US and didn't buy a European Router and it can't be changed?) or you could have problems.

The '+' means you are using a side band, and for N full 300Mbps+ speeds, it is REQUIRED that both the main band and side band be used.
