    EDIT: I just manually changed my channel to be 3. Maybe that was the problem?

    Sorry for the delay......Channel 1 and 11 are commonly used in your Wi-Fi neighbors, Channel 6 will be better for you then monitor your connection.

    Please give us an update. Thanks.

    Since I changed it to channel 3 things have been going very well, not slow as it was before but I'll need more time to test it to be sure. Would channel 6 be better than 3?

    The recommended channels are Channel 1, 6 and 11. If you're not having an issue with 3 you may leave it and monitor, change it to 6 if the issue persist.

    Glad to hear....

    Thank you so much for helping. When I seen the second scan results and noticed a lot of my neighborhood was on the same channel it clicked in my mind to change it hehe. Thanks again for your help and it's going really good on channel 3 so I'll leave it for now.
