Correct Wireless Channel

Is there a way to select the best channel for fast connection (Not download speed, on computer start up)without trying each one individually?

Wireless Channels are set in the Router, and you have to find one that works best for you. You may also need to change it from time to time

Makes no difference which channel you are on as far as initial connection is concerned.

Mine was set to auto, so I think it tried all channels before connecting which took a long time. I have set it back on manual to channel 1 which is better but I have tried channels 1,6,11, & 13. There does not seem to be any difference.

Thanks, that is the conclusion I have reached after trying the various channels as listed above.
I just wondered if there was a difference.
