    I attempted to change my wireless channel today to test if my connection could be stronger if i did that..

    But once i changed it, i realised my laptop wasnt able to connect to the wireless network ? However, my mobile and a very old desktop could still connect after that..

    Is there a limitation for laptop wireless adaptors or ..?

    Any methods to reconnect to the wireless connection using my laptop ?

    Cheers ~

    Changing channels on the access point won't cause such a problem, it's coincidental. Changing channels won't make a signal stronger, you need gain antennas or amps for that, it might avoid interference at best.
