The eleven or twelve wireless channels differ only in the wavelength they use.

All the channels can be secured by using a WEP or WPA key. They are no different in that respect.

The reason why eleven or twelve wireless channels is provided is simply so you can change to another channel if someone else near you is using the same one and it's interfering with your own wireless connection.

To clarify what channel you are on does not secure your wifi. The level of encryption you use does. Only wpa2 is secure. All others have been hacked.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

The only reason you need to know what channel you are on is so that you can avoid using the same one as another channel with a strong signal.

1, 6 and 11 are favored - plenty of information if you use Google.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hiii... Since you want to know about wireless channels you can go through this..

IEEE 802.11g/b wireless nodes communicate with each other using radio frequency signals in the ISM (Industrial, Scientific, and Medical) band between 2.4 GHz and 2.5 GHz. Neighboring channels are 5 MHz apart. However, due to the spread spectrum effect of the signals, a node sending signals using a particular channel will utilize frequency spectrum 12.5 MHz above and below the center channel frequency. As a result, two separate wireless networks using neighboring channels (for example, channel 1 and channel 2) in the same general vicinity will interfere with each other. Applying two channels that allow the maximum channel separation will decrease the amount of channel cross-talk and provide a noticeable performance increase over networks with minimal channel separation.
