The transmitter Channel button
You can use the Channel button to narrow the selection of frequencies the transmitter uses.
The transmitter is factory set to avoid WiFi channel 6. This helps prevent performance prob-
lems, such as slow or intermittent data transmissions, on a wireless network. If you have a
wireless network set up on another channel, you can set up your transmitter to avoid that
channel, or you can move the WiFi network to channel 6.
To reserve a channel for use by your WiFi network:
1. Press and hold the Channel button for more than 3 seconds to reach the setting for NO
WIFI NETWORK. The Status LED blinks red three times to confirm this move.
2. In the grouping below, locate the channel used by your nearby WiFi network:
NO WIFI NETWORK...6...11...1...2...3...4...5...7...8...9...10.
3. Count the number of forward moves it takes from the NO WIFI NETWORK setting to
reach your WiFi network channel. For example, if your WiFi network uses channel 3, you
need to move forward 5 times to reserve channel 3 for WiFi network use only.
4. Press the Channel button for less than 3 seconds for each forward move. Repeat as
many times as needed to reach the channel you want to reserve. The Status LED will
blink red to confirm each move.
If the WiFi network channel is unknown to you, use the Channel button to switch off one
channel at a time. Test the WiFi network to see which setting gives you the best effect.
