The '''Wireless Overview''' window provides you with the possibility to configure your wireless access points and wireless clients in both, 2.4GHz and 5GHz, bands. The Wireless Clients are needed to set up [[{{{name}}} WAN#Wireless WAN|Wireless WAN]] which will become active only when WiFi Client is already set up.

Above is the overview of the Wireless Overview window. It displays active access points and stations. Here you can turn on or off your WiFi interfaces, remove unwanted access points or stations or enter a configuration window for each WiFi interface, where you can configure it more thoroughly.

Above is the overview of the Wireless Overview window. It displays active access points and stations.
 +
Here you can turn on or off your WiFi interfaces, remove them or start configuring by clicking on
 +
[[File:Networking rutx manual edit button v1.png]] <b>Edit</b> button on the right side of interface.
 +
You can also configure your WiFi devices by clicking [[File:Networking rutx manual edit button v1.png]] <b>Edit</b> button
 +
in the right side of each table header.
 +
To configure your Wireless device as Client press '''Scan''' button under chosen band (2.4 GHZ or 5 GHZ) to scan the surrounding area and attempt to connect to a new wireless access point.
   −
The Wireless Access Point configuration window is used to make changes to different access points. It is divided into two main sections – device and interface. One is dedicated to configuring hardware parameters, the other – software. To access this window, simply click the '''edit''' [[File:Networking_rutx_manual_edit_button_v1.png]] button next to the WiFi interface that you wish to configure:

Choose a WiFi channel according to the busyness of other channels. While RUT devices do not provide a function that lets you monitor the usage of nearby WiFi channels, you can download a free WiFi analyzer app on your phone, laptop or other WiFi device. In most countries there are 13 WiFi channels on the 2.4 GHz band (14 in Japan) to choose from. RUT routers' WiFi works on the 2.4 GHz band. A wireless 2.4 GHz WiFi channel requires a signaling band roughly 22 MHz wide, radio frequencies of neighboring channels numbers significantly overlap each other. Many home networks utilize routers that by default run on channel 6 on the 2.4 GHz band. Neighboring WiFi home networks that run over the same channel generate radio interference that can cause significant network performance slowdowns for users. Reconfiguring a network to run on a different wireless channel helps minimize these slowdowns. Therefore, pick a channel with no other active Access Points and preferably one that has no active Access Point on two adjacent channels on each side as well. If you don't feel like doing this, set the '''Channel''' field to '''Auto''' and the router will pick the least busy channel in your location automatically.
