I have a PC running XP and Realtak 8180 WIFI card.

How do I lock it to channel 6?

Problem is that there are so many WIFI in my area, that I cant connect
unless I can lock it to channel 6 - it weavers all the time to
stronger signals on channel 11.

Re: Lock PC to channel 6

Do you have a wireless router or an Access Point that you use your

realtek card to associate with?  If so, there might be a feature in

your router's menu that will allow you to enable or disable

autoscanning of less used channels.  I am unfamiliar with your Realtek

card.  If it is a super-g card (108mbps), then it will more than likely

default to channel 6 if super-g is enabled.  Still, that will depend on

the settings of your wireless router / AP.
