      Dave,

      You might want to try this application (install on the PC that is connecting wirelessly) > Downloads | NetStumbler.com it allows you to see any neighbouring WiFi so you can change your channel appropriately.

      The "best" channel to use is one that is as far away as possible from any other frequencies being broadcast within range. If people think say channel 6 is one of the "best" and two adjacent people use it then that's not going to be very satisfactory.

      In an environment where other devices can not be detected, channel 13 is probably a good choice as it is likely to be least affected by other sources of interference such as the military, microwave ovens, radio amateurs etc.
