I'm not sure if that particular router changes the channels often or just
once, but I would heartily recommend manually selecting the best channel in
your area. After experimenting, I found that it is best to use channel 1, 6
or 11, whichever is less occupied. If all 3 are taken, the next best choice
is the one with the weakest neighboring signal. The vast majority of my
neighbors use channel 9 which interferes with both channel 6 & 11, so I
chose channel 1.
