    My laptop HP compaq presario c700 (Windows Vista) has problem connecting to the internet for almost 1 month. If i try to connect to the internet, it is giving the error "wireless association failed because windows did not receive any response from the wireless router or access point". I found in this forum that one had almost the same issue and changed the channel and it worked. I wanted to try it but don't know how to change the channel. Infact, I don't know what a channel is ! Can anyone guide me what I am supposed to do in order to change the channel?

    How far away is the router?

    The channel can be changed in the router's settings after you log into the router. If you have other devices around that use that range (surveillance cams and other things), changing the channel might help. Does it work better if you are close to the router?

    (The channel option might also have an "auto" option where it chooses a channel by itself that is not in use.)
