Hi guys - well, Bell's online help outside of the HH3000 page was useless for sure. The only good info I located was using the Help function, when directly logged into the modem settings.
So, within the modem help, here's a list of the info provided:
Like radio stations, your modem broadcasts its signal on various channels. When too many devices are broadcasting on the same channel, it can cause interference and affect performance.
We recommend you keep the default Auto setting. The number in brackets indicates the auto-selected channel.
Setting the channel to the auto mode allows the modem to automatically select the best available channel. When it detects too much interference with the selected channel it will move to another one (called channel hopping).
You can also manually change the channels to see if your Wi-Fi performance and speed improves.
For 2.4 GHZ Band:
We recommend using channel 1, 6 and 11, with preference for channel 6. This will allow maximum wireless interoperability if other Wi-Fi networks are around.
Note: Changing the channel manually may be a temporary solution until the channel you have selected becomes congested and will need to be changed again. Therefore, the auto mode is normally the best option.
For 5.0 GHZ Band:
Similar to 2.4, you can manually set a channel when experiencing poor Wi-Fi connection. However, it is recommended to keep it set to the auto mode.
You may also try selecting higher channels in priority as they are allowed a higher transmit power and it may improve your Wi-Fi performance.
Select one of the available 802.11 standards.
Auto (recommended/default): Lets the modem choose which wireless standard is right for the device that is connecting to your network.
You can also connect to a specific interface type.
Wireless 802.11 n (most recent standard)
Wireless 802.11 g
Wireless 802.11 b
Wireless 802.11 ac (most recent standard)
Wireless 802.11 a
Note: If you select anything other than Auto, you may get slower connections speeds and even lose your connection
For my 2 WiFi connections, the options available to me:
interface = auto, B, G, N
channel = auto, 1-11
interface = auto, A, N, AC
channel = auto, 36, 40, 44, 48
