hi, can someone tell me how to change the frequency on a dlink dir 615 to 5Ghz like you can on the apple airport express? because our microwave interferes with it and if i move it then something else interferes with it. :S

My late model DIR615 only operates between 2.412 and 2.462 GHz.

I believe the default setting is auto channel scan, perhaps turning off auto channel scann and trying the various 11 channels might solve the problem for you.

Go to Setup, then Wireless, then Manual Wireless Network Setup.

I am guessing, because its got 2 antennas, that it is a MIMO system that uses 40mhz of spectrum. A normal B or G access point will only use 20mhz.

If you can log into the unit's web interface and change it from N mode to G mode, then that should reduce the amount of the 2.4ghz spectrum that it uses, and therefore reduce the amount of interference that it could recieve.
The slower speed of 54mbit or less will also increase its tolerance and link stability when the interference occurs. In this mode, you will still be able to download from the internet at up to 2.5 megabytes per second so you should not see any major decrease in speed.
