So a while a go I discovered that the reason why everyone else was able to connect to the wireless except for me (whilst being able to see other networks) was that the wireless I used to be able to connect to is on channel 13 and my computer only sees up to 11 these days. How would I go about having it listen to 12 and 13 again?
