Some great answers here, but others that just don't understand the technology. Let me answer with a fictitious, non-technical example. Let's imagine a world where the "highways" are 11 "lanes" wide and the vehicles are 5 lanes wide. Driving part way on the "shoulder" is allowed. If there is a vehicle going slowly centered on lane 3, this would cause ...

The proof of the pudding is in the eating! 1-6-11 is often worse in moderately congested areas The 1-6-11 recommendation contained in Cisco's whitepaper about IEEE 802.11 deployment in the corporate environment certainly does not apply to all circumstances!

Simple - the one thats in least use, and the best way to find this out is with a site survey. I favour doing a site survey - I find that a mobile phone or tablet with inssider (I use Android on my phones, so this is what I use ) or some other network scanner is a great tool for this - it shows you what channels are in use (and how many APs are using it and ...

You'd need a firewall on your phone. Unfortunately, this is not a built-in feature of Android. You'd have to download an app for it, and such an app would likely require your phone to be rooted.
