Wi-Fi Signals

There are two kinds of  Wi-Fi signal, in view of the frequencies they utilize:

2.4GHz РA lower frequency, this is the more typical Wi-Fi technology being used today. Numerous gadgets utilize it, so the signs can turn out to be more swarmed and meddle with one another. It can go through dividers and windows genuinely well.

5GHz – This higher frequency technology is utilized by fewer devices, and can once in a while accomplish higher paces on the grounds that the frequencies are less swarmed. It can’t go through dividers and windows and in addition the 2.4GHz band signals, so the scope of 5GHz technology is frequently shorter.

These two sorts of Wi-Fi are known as the Frequency Bands, or just Bands for short.

Every frequency band utilized in Wi-Fi is separated up into numerous “channels”. Each channel is like rooms at a gathering – on the off chance that one room is swarmed it is difficult to bear on a discussion. You can move to the following room, yet that may become busy too. When the building is full, it ends up hard to bear on a discussion at the gathering.


2.4GHz Band


For the 2.4GHz band, there are 14 channels add up to. Unfortunately, these channels overlap, so they aren’t all usable in the meantime. On the off chance that you are setting up a work organize – the majority of the work connections should be on a similar channel.




The accessible channels differ contingent upon where you are in the world. For instance, in the United States stations 12, 13 and 14 are not considered Wi-Fi, as those frequencies are utilized by TV and satellite services. On the off chance that you are building systems in the United States, you can just utilize channels 1 through 11. In whatever remains of the world, channels 1 through 13 are by and large usable, and in a couple of spots channel, 14 is accessible.

Regardless of that, the best divert in the United States and the vast majority of the world to use for 2.4GHz band gear are channels 1, 6, and 11. This will limit impedance caused by incompletely covering Wi-Fi signals:



You could utilize different arrangements of Wi-Fi channels, as long as they are 5 channels separated – for example, 3, 8 and 13. This may not be ideal, however, as channels 1 and 2 would be unused, and in numerous spots on the planet channel, 13 isn’t accessible. Wherever you are, attempt and check what diverts are most being used, and plan your system to utilize a channel that doesn’t cover.


5GHz Band


The 5GHz frequency band is substantially more extensive and has more channels, so the chart is broader. Luckily, these channels don’t cover, so you don’t need to stress over picking non-standard channels like in the 2.4GHz band.





There are numerous more channels accessible in the 5GHz band, so it ought to be simpler to choose a channel in this band doesn’t cause obstruction. This may not generally be genuine – more remote gear is beginning to utilize the 5GHz

In the United States, just channels accessible for building network systems are 36, 40, 44, 48, 149, 153, 157, 161, and 165. There are different channels accessible for Access Points or different kinds of network systems, yet those channels won’t work with work remote. The best place to check what is permitted in your general vicinity is on the web.

When setting up your remote system, you should consider what frequency band to utilize, and what channel to utilize.
