      Wireless Channel to use?

      Hi Guys,

      Busy setting up my new black Sky Hub and I would be grateful if someone could advise me what Wireless Channel should I use.
      Do I leave it as the default AUTO or work through them from 1-12 to see which one gives the best performance.

      You need to use a channel that either is not being used or one with the weakest signal, only you can tell which is the best for you, I use Inssider on my PC to analyse the channel usage in my area.

      You missed channel 13 which is often the best. Do as Annie suggests and use Inssider2 to find the best channel. Link below.
