Why would you change the default channel on a wireless access point?

  • To release the SSID
  • To decrease WEP security settings
  • If channel overlap occurs between access points [Please report iif the answer is incorrect]
  • To increase WEP security settings

Why would you change the default channel on a wireless access point?

EXPLANATION

 

One reason your wireless network may have poor Wi-Fi signal is because of interference caused by other devices. Since most wireless home networks transmit their signals in a narrow radio frequency range around 2.4 GHz, it's common for devices on the same frequency to affect the wireless signal.
Other electronics in a home, like cordless phones, garage door openers, baby monitors, and microwave ovens, may also use this same frequency range. Any such device can easily interfere with a wireless home network, slowing down its performance and potentially breaking network connections.

Any such device can easily interfere with a wireless home network, slowing down its performance and potentially breaking network connections. Likewise, the wireless networks of neighbors generally all use the same form of radio signaling. Especially in residences that share walls with each other, interference between different home networks is not uncommon. Fortunately, most routers give you the option to change the wireless channel so they can communicate on a different frequency to avoid interference.
