    Hello there,

    Welcome to Apple Support Communities!

    You want to reset your router channel. 

     

    System Preferences/Internet & Network/Network

    Unlock the padlock

    Locations:  Automatic

    Highlight Airport

    Click the Assist Me button

    In the popup window click the Diagnostic button.

     

    System Preferences/Network- Unlock padlock.  Highlight Airport.  Network Name-select your name.  Click on the Advanced button.  Airport/Preferred Networks-delete all that is not your network.

    Place a check mark next to "Remember networks this computer has joined."  Click the OK button and lock the padlock.  Restart your computer.

    No internet connection (wireless)

    Check to see if an extra entry is present in the DNS Tab for your wireless connection (System Preferences/Network/Airport/Advanced/DNS).

    Delete all extra entries that you find.

    Place a check mark next to "Remember networks this computer has joined."

     

    Good luck,

    Eliot
