CNET GLOSSARY: Terms for the techie
Different networking technologies divide their allocated spectrum up in different ways. You can sometimes improve the performance of your network and avoid interference on the band by moving your network to a different nonoverlapping channel available to the devices. 802.11b and 802.11g devices have three nonoverlapping channels. 802.11a devices have eight nonoverlapping channels.
