Where you you "Type in" your IP Address to get to your router? You just said you need to "Type in your ip addy" theres about a million places where you can type it in, so I'd just like to know which one.

That may not be the IP address that you need to type in, then. Each router has a different IP address by default. Your best bet is to find the brand and model number of your router and search for it in google (eg. linksys wrt54g IP). You will also need to know the default router password (NOT the password you use to connect to it, it is a separate administrative password), which will likely be found in the same google search. However, by default, most are set to admin/admin or admin/ . Note that means simply to leave the password field blank.
So find your router's default IP, type that into your address bar, and you will be prompted to log in. Use those credentials, and you should be able to log into the router. If you are not used to it, you wil be surprised by all of the information that is available from this interface. Don't be daunted. The selection you are looking for is most likely located under a tab entitled 'wireless.' Set the channel manually, resynch all of your gadgets, and have fun.
Note: A bit out of the normal range, I use channel 11 because it seems to get the best results on my Wii as well as the PS3. However, I was living in an apartment complex when I set it up, so each person will have different results, depending on where they are.
