    I have a Spirit Cable/ADSL Wireless Router I am assuming it is a OEM of some sort. The version of the firmware I have doesn't allow me to change channels and I have neighbour who is using the same channel.

    I apologise for my ignorance about the LinkSysInfo project, but I really don't where to start.

    How do I identify what firmware is suitable for this unit?

    What firmware and where can I download it from for this unit?

    Is there anyway I can change the channel, if there is no web-page field to do this?

    can you telnet into the box?

    Not through the standard telnet port (telnet 192.168.1.1). Is there any other options? I seen comments about using echo on this forum.

    Thanks for your help by the way.

    so you cannot type the WR-214C ip adress in the address bar of a browser to access the web gui

    Yes, I can browser the GUI via a browser, but the GUI doesn't give any you options to change channels. I don't seem to be able to telnet. But some of hidden pages mentioned on this forum work.


    Under the wireless menu all I get is:
