A technician is configuring the channel on a wireless router to either 1, 6, or 11. What is the purpose of adjusting the channel?
- to disable broadcasting of the SSID
- to enable different 802.11 standards
- to provide stronger security modes
- to avoid interference from nearby wireless devices
Channels 1, 6, and 11 are selected because they are 5 channels apart. thus minimizing the interference with adjacent channels. A channel frequency can interfere with channels on either side of the main frequency. All wireless devices need to be used on nonadjacent channels.
