    You have to change the channel in the router where the SSID is setup. InSSider just shows you what is going on around you.

    Most routers have the option to change their wireless operating channel from 1-11. With channels 1,6,& 11 being the most common. These common channels are recommended because they will most likely not interfere with other wireless communications, such as cordless phones, baby monitors, etc.

    Channel 11 also can operate at a bandwidth of 40Mhz. This is where the the +7 comes from. Other channels can only achieve a maximum bandwidth of 20Mhz.

    Overlapping networks are any wireless networks within range of your router. For the most part it won't cause any harm, unless many overlapping networks are on the same channel. For that, most modern routers have a feature to automatically change which channel they are using to avoid interference.

Just My opinion.. Windows in the Win8 version is not suited for home use any longer. It is overly complex, and, even for experienced Windows users, it is counter intuitive in many areas. I think Windows 8 has taken complexity “one bridge too far” for ordinary users. This comment by me, a MSEE...
