How to reduce interference
This blog post shows how to set up channel and radio mode and adjust power control on Tanaza Dashboard.
Tanaza cloud management software allows users to easily change the network channel. It also sends a triggered email alert when there is an increase of interference and will include, in the future, a channel orchestration mechanism to automatically remove inferference.
If your Wi-Fi is slow, or signal drops down at a certain time or in certain places, Tanaza helps you solve the issue from remote.
1# Choose the country
Select your country from the drop-down menu.
Tanaza allows to set different countries to follow local country regulations, including operation within legal frequency channels, output power, and Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS). It’s the end user responsibility to keep the unit working according to these rules.
2# Radio mode
Choose the radio mode between 802.11 b, 802.11 g and 802.11 b/g/n.
This setting controls which versions of the 802.11 a/b/g/n standard the network uses for wireless communication.
Newer standards (802.11n) support faster transfer rates, and older standards provide compatibiliy with older devices and additional range.
3# Set up the channel width
Choose between 20 MHz and 40 MHz.
Channel width controls how broad the wireless signal is for transferring data. This has an impact on the maximum speed of your Wi-Fi network (have a look at this article, at point 5, to know more about the impact on speed due to 20/40MHz channels).
Data doesn’t move as fast across 20 MHz as it does across the broader 40 or 60 MHz channels, but 20 MHz channel width supports legacy 802.11x devices and has tipically better range than 40 MHz.
4# Choose the channel
This setting controls which channel your Wi-Fi router will use to communicate.
You should pick a channel that is free from other WiFi access points and other sources of interference to have better performances.
5# Adjust power level
Choose from the drop-down menu the power level, from 1 to 20 dBm.
The TX power setting specifies the strenght of the signal that the router produces during the times it is transmitting. Lowering the TX power allows to reduce interferences when more Wi-Fi devices are near.
