Windows 7: Ultimate Router Guide: Optimize Security & Performance

30 Dec 2012   #31

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

Network Stumbler gave me all kinds of issues (first access was denied as I didn't login as Admin, then it said the Adaptor wasn't Present, then gave me some other common error) so I ended up using WiFi Locator instead to see what channels were being used locally. Nice little program.

Question, on my router, it has a Channel Width (20Mhz or 40 ... I selected 40), and then offers two channels, one the "Standard Channel" where you can select 1-11 or Auto, and then a "Width" channel that allows me to select 2 or 10 (I selected 6 from the first option).

What is the Width channel?

i would like to know if i cut mac address off at certain time on certain comp on my network, if it would cause major probs or mess with other comps on network.also, my son and daughter keep dumping their firewalls for some unknown reaon. maybe for gaming. can this mess up my network even if i have one on my own personal comp? is there a way for me to put firewall on my g wifi router so they cant bypass it?i have e3000 dual band linksys w/tomato on it, but it keeps dropping wifi. can you give pointers on setup to put firewall on it also so they cant bypass it? would it be better to hardwire them since its 2.4 and 5 ghz dual band router?
